Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays! In between BBQs and a movie I managed to create two skirts. All from my stash---the flowered cotton strecth print is nade out of an out of print Vogue pattern, and the second one I drafted myself is a yellow stretch charmeuse from Joann's with a white knit overlay, which I got from Walmart's some time ago for $4 yd, was my own pattern. It has a tiny waistband with elastic made out of the charmeuse. I used rib knit for the skirt yoke. It's inspired by a skirt that Sarah Veblen showed us when she gave a presentation to my ASG NG in June! Her garments were beautiful!
Yippee! I got my first issue of BWOF! Now I see what all the hype was about. It is really a great magazine, with so many patterns. Thanks for turning me on blog friends!
Happy sewing!

I watched MJs memorial and cried too! I cried the most when Brooke Shields, Marlon, and his daughter, Paris spoke. His brother's were so visibly hurt. What a shame! Thank God for film, CDs, and DVDs.
