Bracciano part 3


What nobody told me and I had no way to know, was that it is windy in Italy this time of the year. I mean, it is really windy. It's the hold-your-skirt wind type. Very unforgiving, especially when you wear circle skirts like this one that I'd sewn for myself moments before we left. Circle skirts tend to just do what they please and go up whenever you aren't watching. But I really had no idea so all I packed were skirts and dresses, silly me. Also the hat needed constant help with not flying off of my head. Whew!




Nikt mi o tym nie powiedział, więc nie mogłam wiedzieć, że o tej porze roku we Włoszech wieje. Wieje bardzo. Tak bardzo, że jest to oficjalny Sezon Wiatrów Podwiewających Spódnice. Niestety, zapakowałam wyłącznie spódnice i sukienki do naszej wyjazdowej walizy, więc połowę wyjazdu spędziłam trzymając się za żyjące własnym życiem rąbki, które nagle wykazały tendencje do uczynienia mnie bardziej nieskromną niż w istocie jestem. Szczególnie uszyta w ostatniej chwili spódnica z koła niespodziewanie odsłoniła swój podfruwajkowy charakter. Kapelusz też odleciałby, gdybym mu nie pomogła zostać na głowie.

  2. I've been loving these posts! I am also so very jealous of your lovely photos (your boyfriend is the photographer, right?). It's like having your own personal photo shoots everyday! He does great work! Easy to since you're so gorgeous!

    1. Oh dear, that's so lovely of you to say! Yes, my boyfriend takes those shoots very seriously, sometimes even more seriously that I do! I think I would like to go back to taking my own pictures, though, I enjoyed doing it this summer.

    1. Ahh, thank you! I'm really glad I decided to make a circle skirt from this fabric. I was thinking about a half circle first but went with my gut feeling that said: go big.

    1. Trzymałam, trzymałam! Tak bardzo trzymałam, że trudno było drugą ręką robić zdjęcia ;).

  5. I LOVE this skirt! The fabric works so perfectly with a circle skirt. I've made a lot of circle skirts, and so I really appreciate the link you put in the We Sew Retro page that calculates the radius and length for you! So much less work. Again, lovely skirt!

    1. Thank you dear! And yep, I must say this app was a lifesaver. Otherwise I might have screwed up juuuust the way I did when I was making the red plaid half circle skirt from another post and calculated for a waist that is much smaller than mine :D. Had to rip the band off, ugh.
