A cheeky little Brumby skirt

Brumby skirt 2

Howdy y’all. I recently whipped up this cute little skirt especially for wearing to The Handmade Fair a couple of weeks back.  It’s a really easy pattern by Megan Nielsen called Brumby skirt.

It was dead easy to sew – and quick too!  Which was good because I left it really last minute to make this (as is my way!).  I followed instructions from the Megan Niesen app to make this, which was really clear and helpful.  I quite liked following instructions in that way, though I do think I prefer having paper instructions.  Only because it was occasionally a pain to keep unlocking my phone.

The fabric for this skirt was from my fantastic local, Backstitch.  It was lovely to work with – a light/medium weight light denim.

I chose to make a very simple short skirt from all of the variations of Brumby.  And I went for the style without pockets.  And I also tightened the waist band to fit snuggly at my waist – so that I could wear it high-waisted.

I love how girly I feel in this skirt.  Another one that you can’t help but twirl in!  I loved wearing this at the Handmade Fair too – though I did manage to flash a couple of grannies before getting on the train, when a gust of wind blew the skirt right up!  A proper Marilyn Monroe moment.  Can’t take me anywhere! 😉

I hope you like my posh new DMs too.  They’re my pride and joy!

TTFN.
