I love how cute the Kasia skirt is. I admire it often on these folks on flickr. Nikkishell has made three of them, and they are all great. I am very tempted to make one—I even have a stretch cotton twill that would be the right sort of fabric—but I’m afraid it work work on my pear-ish shape. The high waistband (and obviously also the sailor-type buttons) make this skirt really fun, but it would not be fun if the my hips made the waist ride up higher and higher as the day wore on. It’s really cute though.

I spent most of today looking really not cute. I’m pretty sure I was wearing that ugly old baggy t-shirt from that team building exercise I did for my old work—the one with the curry stain. I was painting, and then Elie and I hauled a lot of funky insulation up to the attic. We’re trying really hard to clear out the back room so that we can actually finish and heat it this winter instead of closing it off for the season, as we’ve done for the last couple of years. Part of doing this has meant putting a bunch of random stuff on craigslist. I love craigslist and freecycle because we always have so much perfectly good stuff that just isn’t useful to us anymore. Beige rolling office chair anyone?

Those skirts are really cute! I, too, worry about how they would look on me. I picture the area with the buttons just bunching up and sticking out and generally being unflattering on me.
Oh, and I love Freecycle too!

Is that a Flight of the Conchords reference?

Thanks so much for featuring my Kasia skirts on your blog!! I love the fit of this skirt, it’s so flattering and makes me want to wiggle when i walk ;) Give it a go, after all the pattern is free.
