Today is my birthday so I made myself a skirt, AND I have a fun giveaway for my awesome readers! Yay! 

Me Made: Triangle Printed Pencil Skirt

A couple of weeks ago I ordered some custom collar stays for my husband for our anniversary from Truly Kustom. I was worried it wouldn’t arrive in time, but in came so quickly! I was really impressed with the speed, quality (they have gone through the was a couple of times with no problems!), and customer service, so I contacted the shop about a giveaway for you! I

For my birthday I also bought the Pleated Pencil Skirt pattern. I’ve been eyeing it, and I need a perfect pencil skirt pattern. After one make I do love it. I didn’t have time to make a muslin, so I had some fitting issues to deal with. This first one isn’t quite perfect, but now I know what to do to the paper pattern to make it perfect. I shaved of some of the hip circumference, will need to shorten the back waist length, and need to take in the top of the waistband. I also need to make the pleat deeper so that I have more room to move. I used fabric from Miss Matatabi that I won from a giveaway earlier this year. It’s gorgeous fabric, and I’m sad to say it’s not available anymore.

There are so many fun colors and the triangles are great. I didn’t have a matching invisible zipper so I used fuchsia. It’s noticeable, but I kind of like it. When I sewed up the back pleat, I accidentally matched the triangles so perfectly that it looks like I totally meant to do it. Happy accident! I do have a problem of sewing everything out of printed fabric, so I really need to make some solid fabric pieces to match!

I got to review the dainty triangle necklace in gold, and I love it. I haven’t really bought myself jewelry in years so something new and simple was so refreshing. It’s high quality, Claire has yanked on it already, and the perfect paired with my triangle pencil skirt. I don’t often recommend shops, but I do recommend this one. It would be a great gift for Christmas especially for those people who are hard to shop for!
