Yay! Star Wars Day - May 4th be with you!!
And in honour of that . . . .
Yep, Mr. SDSC has a lightsaber! He also has a fabulous fleece Jedi cloak that I made a number of years ago as a dressing gown but he says that we misplaced it in the move. It sounds a little suspicious to me because he complained that it was too long and he kept tripping over when wearing it - particularly when going down stairs. Mr. Picky!! It was a result of this complaint that I made him the Batman dressing gown this Christmas.
Anyway - back to me please! Today's 'Me Made' is another fabulous skirt from Simplicity 4221. I keep coming across a number of items that I have not blogged about, and I think that this skirt is another. The fabric is a bit seersucker like - a supersoft cotton with stripey puckering and the odd stripe of silver for that summer skirt 'bling look!' I'm not sure where this fabric came from - I don't recall buying it so it may be one of my mother's fabrics. The skirt has 4 gores and I have lined it with with cotton to give it a bit of body and prevent the 'Lady Di' look! It is worn with a RTW pink cardigan, a RTW white tank and a lightsaber . . . .

Oh yes, and it looks as though we may finally be moving towards Spring. Today is gloriously sunny and I think that there may be quite a few Summer skirts being brought out!
