My creative space

I had intended to start in a couple of summer dresses for myself today

~ this is the Maitai River which runs through Nelson, usually it's a pretty sleepy quiet river, but not today ~

  However it was such a dismal grey day today that I couldn't seem to get my head around summer clothes, how they would look or even should look.

so I made myself a skirt instead. I had already decided on the fabric and how I wanted it to look, not much thought required here. A simple skirt with two pleats in the centre front and centre back. Now all I need is a sunny day.

Cute skirt, I love pleats in the middle like that - so flattering - all ready for Wardrobe Wednesday next week - not black and not denim. Ha! I used too live up the hill from the Matai as a kid, your post made me all nostalgic - I remember racing to the swimming hole (Girlie's hole I think?) after school.
