I made four, count them – FOUR! – new skirts. I’ve decided that I will no longer wear shorts in the summer unless I am actually holding a fishing pole, rake or hoe in my hand. Skirts are just so much more fun and flattering, especially as I slide further into middle age where no amount of exercise will keep the cellulite at bay.
Here’s the set. Don’t they look lovely spread out on my kitchen table? Note the creative display. I’ve folded them all in half so that you can’t see that I am wider than I am tall. I should work in a department store or something. Can you see a trend here? At one time, I had a fascination for decorated linen, enough to buy large chunks of it and stash it in the attic! The light blue one is denim, and the yellow embroidery exactly matches a favorite summer sweater shell, a perfect outfit for Friday At The Office.
I took a lesson from Darling Petunia, and made some spiffy bias tape to finish off the facings and hemlines. I like my clothes to look pretty on the inside, because you never know when you might throw them on inside out and dash out the door!
Now that the stash is officially depleted, it’s time to start scouring thrifts for some serious refashioning pieces.
