Thank you for all of your Pinterest suggestions – I am busy lusting after amazing vintage fashions and photos. It really is hard to step away from the computer screen . . .
There are easily twenty new ideas for projects floating around in my head, but I have not been in the sewing room for three days. Time to get back to work - no more distractions!
As I have previously mentioned, this skirt was my attempt to make a much more wearable piece of clothing from this pattern.
Unfortunately, this is only the second time I have worn the skirt – something I need to remedy. And I believe part of the problem is that the print is extremely memorable.
Clearly, I have no problem wearing clothing that sticks out like a sore thumb, so that cannot be the issue.
But for some reason, a skirt like this gets stuck in the closet. The plain skirts in my wardrobe get a ton of wear, but the wild prints? Not so much. There really is no way to disguise this particular skirt - but that is okay! I just need to find more tops that work back to the skirt. Or I could always make more of my favorite article of clothing - the dress!
