Blue Bow Pleated Skirt
When I got back from Alaska in May but before I gallivanted off to Chicago, I spent a few days at home in the woods. In this brief respite, I got down and dirty & did a little stash busting. This blue fabric had been around for about 5 or 6 years, so it was high time to give it some new life. So, I made this nice little blue skirt with a happy bow. I love the length--I think it's the perfect happy medium!
There is a handpicked zipper in back with an extended waistband & button. I was just too lazy to do a hook and eye. I think I even sewed the button on with my machine! And, of course, pockets. I never ever regret putting pockets into a garment.
It's really nice to clean out the stash and make a little more room on my shelves. But it is never long before I fill them back up again! Do you find that you're a fabric hoarder? I just always plan on future projects and then never get to them. And I can't say no to a good deal on nice fabric.
Excuse the wrinkles! I knew I should've ironed it. On a less fun note, I found something disastrous today--TWO GRAY HAIRS ON MY HEAD. This is the worst thing in the history of ever. (I know, I'm being over-dramatic. But I'm only twenty!) Woe is me!
