YIP.7.27 – new skirt, new bench, originally uploaded by earthchick.
Hello from Georgia! We are on our summer travels right now, and I am without much internet access, but thought I’d take a moment to pop in and show off my new skirt – one I’m finally thrilled with.
So the Summer of Skirts continues. This is #4 in the series I think (#5 this year) and the last thing I finished up before our travels (I have sewed one more skirt while on vacation, which I hope to show soon). I haven’t been all that thrilled with any of my skirts so far – there’s always something I’m not wild about – but this one is a huge exception. It came together exactly as I’d envisioned, and it is so cool and super-comfortable.
This is Simplicity 2609, an elastic-waist yoked skirt. It includes three options for tiered skirts (sort of gypsy skirts) and two that are four-panel skirts). This is View D, the longer of the paneled skirts. The fabric is a beautiful white crinkly cotton with white embroidered flowers on it.
I got it at Joann’s in March and held on to it until I found a pattern that I thought would do it justice. And I think I have!
It’s a perfect casual skirt for staying cool and keeping comfortable in the Georgia heat and humidity.
Now all I need is a glass of iced tea!
That skirt is GORGEOUS! Wish Aiken was on the way home to Ann Arbor. 😛
That truly is a beautiful skirt. I LOVE the embroidery on it. This almost makes me want to break out the sewing machine!
That is the perfect Summer skirt. The white makes it look cool, the embroidery very feminine and of course the fact you made it makes it perfect! I also love that it is longer – it totally inspires me to get to sewing. Great job.
I think you mean “sweet tea” or just plain “tea” would do it.
I love, love that fabric! White-on-white with texture screams summer!
It looks fab and the setting for the pictures look idyllic! Enjoy your vacation.
Awesome work, Little Missy!
Yes! This one is a keeper; it looks great on you!
What a lovely skirt! I adore that fabric, it’s beautiful. 🙂
