Kelly Skirt

I've been wanting to make the Kelly skirt almost as long as I've been sewing. It's all over the blogosphere and it's gorgeous. Such a great staple pattern that goes with everything. I'm in serious need of some plain skirts, so this is a great cake pattern to fill a gap in my wardrobe.

So as soon as I finished the Meringue skirt from the Colette Sewing Handbook (pictures to come!), I started thinking about this skirt. I bought the pattern today from The Village Haberdashery.

I'm a latecomer to the chambray trend, but I'm suddenly in love with it. I just got a chambray shirt that I have to stop myself wearing every day and a chambray Kelly would be seriously adorable.

I've also been having some serious fun with Photoshop Elements, which I got for my birthday last month! So much of an improvement over Paint Shop Pro 7 which I've probably been using for more than 10 years!

So now I just need to get myself over to Goldhawk Road so I can get myself some fabric!
