Want to see what I've been working on? Of course, they're new projects...because, why would I finish any of my big projects when I can whip up these little numbers?! :)
I've finally been able to put to use some of the that gorgeous Storyboek fabric that my little sis got me for Christmas - isn't it adorable? This print is called Field Friends in Coral and it's too cute.
Basically, the skirt is a tube of fabric with elastic running through a casing at the top. It's truly that simple. The binding was made from some scraps in my stash and goes along with the print wonderfully!
So, this will be Arlyn's Easter skirt (just perfect for Easter with the bunnies all over it) unless I can whip up a little dress in time. Though, I think my next few free nights might be taken up tackling something for Elliott. I'm envisioning some sort of suit jacket for him to wear at Easter, but it's a pretty lofty goal so say a few prayers for me!
Oh, I also worked on this little pleated skirt the other night. I really wanted to try making a skirt with a dropped waistband, and to practice some of my skills I added a lapped zipper at the side.
The lap wasn't quite wide enough (I should have sewn the zipper with a 6/8' allowance instead of 5/8"), but I put a little tab at the top to cover the imperfections!
