I'm pretty sure that I've never been called a little ray of sunshine as much as I have been today.
And I'm pretty sure that it had nothing to do with my bright and cheerful personality.
If I were a betting girl (which I'm not, because I'm generally too cheap) I'd say that it had a little something to do with the bright yellow skirt that I was wearing.
Yep, it's finally done. Truth be told, it's been done for a while now but between the cold and rainy weather that we've been having around here and having to dress up in something a bit more formal than a denim yellow skirt for work, it's been sitting on my dresser for about two weeks.
But today I said "Cold weather be damned. I'm finally going to wear my yellow skirt!" The question then of course was "what the heck goes with almost neon yellow?" I have no idea so I just threw on a shirt that I liked and called it good.
As for the skirt, it's made from Version 1 of Colette's Ginger skirt. Just like the last one that I made I cut a bit off of the side to make it a bit less flared, but looking at it now I wish that I had cut off a bit more. Perhaps for my next version (that's right, I bought fabric for one more) I'll make it even less flared. And that one will actually be in a neutral color - gray. Sadly, I'm pretty sure that when I wear that one no one will be calling me a little ray of sunshine.
Pattern: Ginger by Colette
Size: Cut out a size 4 for the waist and graded up to a size 6 at the hips
Alterations: Took some of the width off of the skirt to make it less flared
