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! 


  1. Glad you're enjoying photoshop and looking forward to seeing your finished skirt!!

  2. Hi Kat, I've sent you x2 emails about my sewing meet-up in Goldhawk Road, London happening this Saturday (perhaps they're trapped in your Spam folder?). I urgently need to finalize numbers attending so that I can find a large enough place to cater for everyone for lunch (were looking at 40-50 "Yes's"). So, if you can please reply to me by 12.00pm on WED 31st July 2013 at the latest I'd be most grateful. My email address is: sew[dot]incidentally[at]yahoo[dot]com . Regards, Claire :)

  3. Hello! I hope you don't mind, but I've nominated you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award - all the details can be found in this post:
