So one project I started...hmmm probably in July...was finally finished last week. I made my very first pencil skirt! Super exciting, huh? I used this pattern in the pencil skirt length.
I found this fabric at this fabric store. It's a type of sateen cotton (machine washable-perfect for a mom). The fabric has a slight sheen and is a bit stretchy, which means it sews like a woven fabric, but has more forgiveness like a knit. It is an orange and off-white paisley print-which reminds me of a Dreamsicle...yummy summer goodness :) (For those of you that don't know what a Dreamsicle is, think a Popsicle with orange sherbet-type out side and vanilla ice cream inside. Totally delicious!)
Me being goofy while the Hubs takes pictures...But I can totally say I am super happy with how the skirt turned out! And now I'm dreaming of a Dreamsicle :)
Have you done any sewing for yourself lately?
