A New Thing

OK, not a new thing in the spiritual sense, more in the tangible sense: I made a skirt! It's my first attempt at clothing of any kind, and it's wearable. The waist is enormous a little big on me, and it's a little longer than I expected it to be, but I am wearing something I made today, which I think is pretty cool. I used Francesca DenHartog's Sew What! Skirts book, and it really made the whole concept of sewing clothes seem possible.

It's a wrap skirt, and unfortunately in the pic the front flap is a little bunched up, but you get the idea:


  1. ~Squeals~ it and you are adorable!!! Congrats on your first skirt! I have made one but that is the only piece of clothing that I have ever made.

    You should be so proud of yourself!!

  2. VERY cute - and, extra bonus, very cute shoes too. Well done! I love the fabric.

  3. Looks good!! And you look very nice with the entire ensemble.

  4. Cute cute cute, and you are BEAUTIFUL!!!


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
