A Patriotic Skirt for the 4th of July (#9)

You just knew I had to do it. Winking smile While digging around in my fabric stash I found the perfect fabric for a 4th of July skirt.  Everyone needs a 4th of July skirt, don’t they?  It doesn’t scream red, white and blue but it’s there.

Here’s a close-up of the fabric.

As you can see it’s not too over the top but it will look cute with a red T-shirt and red sandals.

Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July. 

God Bless America!!!!!!!

Number 8’s White!

I realized that I have several T-shirts that don’t go with anything but jeans, black pants or white pants.  So what’s a person to do?  Yup, you guessed it I made a plain white skirt. 

White Skirt

Plain but practical.  And of course I added pockets to the side seams.  Wait until you see what I made to wear tomorrow.  Laughing out loud 

Enjoy,

What? Another Skirt? #7 and still counting…….

I’m just loving these and still have several in the pipeline. 

I received a funny comment from Jan Macy asking me if I had to buy new hangers.  Sure enough, I did…….but not enough.  Guess I’ll have to go back and buy a few more before this is over. 

This skirt is a little different.  Same pattern and again added pockets but it’s made out of a Rayon Batik and is nice and flowy (is that a word?).  I purchased the fabric at Fabric Depot in Portland and at the time my DIL Maureen said it’s my dressy skirt.  LOL!

So here it is, my dressy skirt made out of flowy Rayon Batik.

I wore this one yesterday with a lime green T-shirt.

This is a Tula Pink fabric.  It has side pockets set in to the side seams.  Love the pockets that I’ve added to the pattern.

Design Wall Monday–June 29, 2015

This is my 5th skirt.  I think I have fabric to make a total of 8.  I’m having so much fun putting together my summer wardrobe.

I bought this fabric while up in the Portland area at Cool Cottons.  This is a very cute store and is in an old house.  When I saw this fabric I just knew I wanted it for a skirt.  The owner asked me what I was going to make and when I told her a skirt she stepped out from behind the cutting table and showed me the skirt she was wearing.  She say’s she wears one everyday even in the rainy and sometimes very cold Northwest.  She simply wears tights under them.  She also confessed to having about 45 of them.  When I get finished making the skirts I have planned, I’ll only have 8 although I can see more in my future.   This just may become my uniform of choice.

To see what others are working on, head on over to Judy’s Patchwork Times blog.

Skirt No. 4 and more to go…………

Here’s skirt No. 4. 
Turq and White Skirt
I wanted to try using a border print and found this while I was in the Portland area last week.  With the help of my friend Susan I was able to line the print up so that the side seams match.  I didn’t add pockets to this one, I was afraid they would show through on the white.  I found a cute turquoise T-shirt at Chico’s to go with it.
Enjoy,
