But no, the skirt I have finished and am about to show you later in this post, is not worth a definition like that. It's great to mé but not something fit for, let's say, a queen.
Then why this title?
I'ts Queens-Day in our country (and in the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba). Today we celebrate our royal family, and they are celebrating with us by visiting a few towns which have organised special festivities. These trips are broadcasted on national television. Actually everywhere in the country there are outdoor queens-day activities. Thé place to be is probably Amsterdam. And not unimportant: everyone has a day off!
I do watch the television but only to see what all our princesses, and especally our crown-princess Máxima, are wearing, haha. Yeah, pretty shallow, I know.
Máxima is always very fashionable and has surprised us more than once with her outfits. I mean, you gotta love this:
or maybe this:
Sigh.........I wish I was a princess.....
No, not really of course.
I wonder if and how her outfits will change once queen Beatrix abdicates and Máxima's husband, prince Willem-Alexander, becomes king. Maybe in a few years time we'll know.
So. That's the link to the (rather silly) title of this post.
But we came here to see the skirt, right?
As I am a bit lazy today I didn't feel like dressing up for a picture so I asked 'The Blue Lady' if she would be so kind to pose for a picture. And she did.
I love this skirt. The fit is great and it has a real spring-feel to it. And that's about all I can tell about it. A great piece to add to my wardrobe and a nice addition to my mini-swap. I'm halfway now, two more garments to sew!
I'm enjoying the first day of a 6-day minibreak and I plan on sewing my next swap-piece, which is the white blouse, and after that the trousers and then I'm done.
Hope you are all (about to) have a great weekend with lots of sewing fun!
