The very Versatile Wrap!

I remember when I made this skirt a year ago reading on the pattern that it was suitable for pregnant bellies.

Well today I was hormonal, emotional - I'm so fat kindof mornings, trying to choose something to wear when I saw this skirt in the drawer. I thought I would give it a go and I was quite impressed. I can see me getting a lot of wear out of this over summer. It is a shame I put buttons in my other one, I don't think it would fit!

Here are some not so flattering shots from today. Ellyse took the shot of Ashton and I - as if you couldn't tell!

In other news I have volunteered to be a pattern tester for TikiBoo Kids. I thought it would be something different to try. I am looking forward to recieving the pattern and fabric in the mail soon.

I have cut Ellyse's Christmas skirt out and hope to get it all sewn up ready for the lighting of the Christmas tree in the city tomorrow night. I could not find a nice t-shirt for Ashton (they were all big and didn't fit nicely) so he has ended up with a yellow singlet, I will applique a red and white Christmas tree onto it. I searched hi and low for a chesty bonds type singlet but couldn't find one anywhere.
