Temperamentally I am not a quick seamstress. I mull projects over, take frequent breaks, have several projects going at the same time (even I realize this sounds a little ADHD) and have difficulty finishing. But I loved how the bias wool/silk fabric looked for this skirt. It's from Fabric Mart. I still have 3 yards left so it will be a jacket one day also.
For the pin, I used some shapes that a friend had designed for cutting T shirt jersey into shapes for embellishing. I cut the back piece out of a brown suede scrap then several sizes from pink organza and the pink and brown wool scraps. Sewed a big brown vintage button and done.
Came home with more funny stories from my classmates' memory banks and a heart of gratitude for our families and one another...as well as chocolates from the amazing confectionery store still thriving in my home town.
|Hmmm, the button actually looks like chocolate, doesn't it?|
