Please excuse the horrendous photography, I was late for work.

I went to Fabric Hut last night and picked out the fabric for the skirt I'm making. I'm making the Burda 8280 skirt, the short version (more here). After much deliberation and discussion at the fabric store, I picked this really gorgeous turquoise blue print. It's 100% linen, which I know will wrinkle pretty easily, but I want something cool and light I can wear for spring and summer.

I washed, dried and pressed it last night, and cut out the paper pieces. Tonight I'm going to pin and cut. Wish me luck, this is the first thing I've ever sewn, period. I'm just jumping in feet first!
