YIP.8.2 – Happy Bench Monday! From the beach!, originally uploaded by earthchick.
Hello from Santa Rosa Beach, Florida!
I have been pretty much unplugged since we got here (I catch a wireless signal every once and awhile – like right now – but have mostly not even tried; even my iPhone is mostly offline right now). I have to admit, it’s pretty nice to be a little disconnected from the real world while we’re here. Though I do dread all those messages stacking up in my inbox!
So here is #5 of the Summer Skirt Series. It’s Simplicity 2069, View D again (because why mess with a good thing?), in a sweet beachy cotton from Joann’s. I cut out the pieces the night before we left on our vacation, and then I sewed it up on my MIL’s antique Singer when we were visiting her.
I really love this pattern and will probably try some of the other variations one of these days. It is unbelievably simple – I’d estimate I spent less than 2 hours from fabric-cutting to hemming.
It’s a great knock-around skirt for the beach, but I think it’ll dress up nicely as well.
Okay, so how’s that for a quickie show-and-tell post? See y’all later, I’m headed back to the beach!
This skirt is also awesome! I think it is the longer length that appeals to me so much, the fabric also is purely summer joy.
Have fun in Florida!
Another skirt? Wow, cute! 🙂
I might have to explore sewing because your skirts look perfect!
