This particular skirt comes to us through space and time from about 5 years ago (holy crap) when I was working at a fabric store for the summer. Needless to say a fair portion of what they paid me went right back into the store, but, seriously, first dibs and SOCK MONKEYS!!!
This is a self drafted pencil -- there wasn't much too it - I sewed up the back to make a tube and then started putting darts all around the top along the edges of the squares (now trapezoids)
I loved it - wore it all summer, and then went to grad school where it wasn't quite the thing. (We're not talking fashion faux pas or anything like that -- its just that I spent a lot of time crawling under tables and lying on floors fixing things)
Anyhow, I was going through things this evening, spotted it, tried it on, and found there was a huge tear up the side - next to, but not actually on the seam, thus preventing me from fixing it properly. (I suppose I could patch it from the inside... hrmmmm......) Anyhow its looking like its days as a skirt are numbered, but I'm not sure what to do with it. The fabric is just so insane that I fear anything cute. As a tight pencil its so absurd it works... but I just don't know where else it can go. Any ideas? (Thank you to the members of the peanut gallery who said 'hi' the other day... now I don't really think the all rest are spam bots, so I will assume you are shy/fear ducks/can't be bothered to log in. Its okay. I love you anyway. Especially with garlic sauce.)
|I didn't make these. But I felt they needed to show up anyway.|
And then, mostly for my own amusement -- I think this is my favorite of the series. Why? Why not. Its 2, I'm up, so you get grammar posters.
