Today has been back to back busy. My plan for today was to get my Barcelona skirt made. Two nights ago I ripped all the seams I did early in the day out with plans of starting over again. When I tried it on it was way too big, and since I am not finished losing weight ripping the seams out was the right thing to do. I don’t want to give this skirt away, and as big as it was I would have. :) The pattern calls for an invisible zipper. The first time around I just threw a regular polyester zipper in. I didn’t want to wait for my next trip to town to get my skirt made. Yesterday I bought an invisible zipper and put it in today. (It was my first invisible zipper experience, but it won’t be the last. It went smooth as silk, and I really like the way they look.) The vintage sheet makes a lovely skirt…somewhat busy, but so am I. :)
We had a lot of company today so I didn’t get anything but the outer skirt finished. This pattern (Amy Butler’s Barcelona Skirt) has a lining, too. I like that idea, because no slip is required…and it won’t be see through. A slip in the summertime in Southeast Mississippi is a miserable thing to wear. I’ve decided to make the lining out of white, cotton gauze. It won’t add any warmth.
One of our visitors was a cute as a button, skinny thin, young lady. She loved the b&w apron and was anxious to model it for me so I could share a picture on here.
Doesn’t she look precious?
Until next time,
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven. Matthew 5:16
I’ve got sunshine in my soul!
