I have long fancied the idea of making my own clothes yet remained daunted by the notion of actually doing so. Then, I read about Rosie Martin and her brilliant DIY Couture manuals in the Hackney Citizen and thought that it was high time that I made SOMETHING to wear.
Rosie’s manuals are well produced, concise and really easy to follow.
I really get the feeling that she is trying to get me to get stuck into the design and creation process of this skirt and I really enjoyed the experience.
And here is the finished article:
I am glowing with a sense of achievement and satisfaction that it worked out. To think that this required 4 rectangles of fabric and a little concentration makes me ever more glad that I came across DIY Couture.
Thank you Rosie for your excellent manual and your attentive customer service.
I shall be trying my hand at a another skirt in the next coming weeks but am also greatly looking forward to the DIY Couture “How to make a Straight Skirt” and “How to Make a Pair of Trousers”.
