tape measure skirt
something for me this time
It’s mid-calf length. In theory I like the combination of safety pins and tape measures, but in practice I’m not so sure – although Gareth really liked it once it was on (Gareth is so untactful that at least when he says he likes something I can believe him). There wasn’t a pattern, just long rectangular strips of safety pin fabric alternated with triangles of tape measure, trimmed off at the bottom and then joined at the top. I didn’t bother with a proper waistband, they’re never comfy and I always wear my shirt over anyway.
No way am I ever wearing this when he wears his tape measure shirt, we’d look like a right pair of matched saddos.
