I was talking to my sewing friends recently - about how I want to make lots and lots of skirts, and retro dresses (again), and of course pants and don't forget about my favorite - TOPS. Guess I just want to make some of every thing. Ebony suggested that I name my skirt collection
"CARNIVAL OF SKIRTS".I love Ebony - she likes to name inanimate things like I do - and she always comes up with some good ones too. She says she had visions of Carnival and all the people who come out to party. O.K. I like it! I've got a feeling there will be quite a few of them that I'll parade around this Fall.
I started The Carnival of Skirts this weekend. Inspiration for this oh so simple skirt came from the Made It on Monday blog. I first saw it back in January, and instantly knew that I could make this easy look work for me. Just never got around to making it up. Well the time has come.
I had left over ponte roma in gray from a dress I made, and just had to buy 1 yard of black (30% off) . Cut my strips, and sewed together to make the large stripped fabric for my skirt. Elastic waist, no pattern, plain and simple - I LOVE IT.
|It will make it's appearance at first chill. Probably won't be until November though.|
I'll make this skirt and then switch off to another type garment. But you can be sure that more skirts will join the Carnival Parade before the Fall Season ends for one big celebration...
