Bilden är från ett Simplicitymönster från 1951. Som jag förstås inte har, men jag har ett mönster på en rak kjol som jag har konstruerat själv.
I'm having a bad flare in my arthritis right now; worse than I've had for years. My ankles and feet are so inflamed that I can hardly walk or stand and my shoulders, knees and fingers also hurt quite a lot. The pain is so bad that I have to take some really potent painkillers which makes me all groggy and makes it hard to think. It really is horrible to be ill when it's so bad that you can't even read a book. I can do some light blogging though; like putting up pictures of pretty stuff. Like this skirt which is from a Simplicity pattern from 1951. I think I'll do something like it this autumn. I don't have the pattern of course, but I have a self-drafted pattern for a straight skirt and adding three pleats in the back is a piece of cake. But it's the kind of detail that gives a skirt that little extra something.
