Hello my gorgeous people! today I have a tale of woe to tell you that has a hopeful ending! Our story starts this last Christmas with our heroine trying to buy an outfit that she could see in her head… it was a simple black top with a perfect pale pink satin skirt.The skirt had to be full but with no gathers over the hips, and with a nice deep, firm waistband, that would hold you in a tiny bit, also the skirt had to be the most perfect shade of pink…
It wasn’t quite ballet shoe, it was more blue a bit like this……
But not quite
But it was almost exactly this pink….
The beautiful Pink Rain by Illmasqua. it was irrelevant because she couldn’t find a skirt in this colour, and worse still all the satin skirts were reeeaalllyy pleated, not a great idea if you have hips!
So, our heroine decided to take things in her own hands, she drew the outfit…..
And sewed it herself! oh wait a minute, she doesn’t really know how to sew…..but dear reader she is planning to learn, she has a brand new sewing machine (she lost the power cable for a month but hey ho) she has a mum who is PHENOMENAL at sewing and soon she starts sewing class! of course now our heroine is planning a whole range of clothes and Victoria Beckham style success…….but really she would be so happy if she could just have the perfect pink satin skirt.
