Taking a Break

I am taking a short break from hectic quilting to work on something for myself.

Remember how I am the plaintiff in a small claims case? Remember how I bought these beauties?




I don't have anything to wear with them. I was so disappointed when I got them because they are beautiful, but I had nothing that matched. So, I went up to Gracie Lou's and bought this lovely Art Gallery Fabric, which can be purchased here, at Gracie Lou's online store.





I am going to be making this skirt (the one on the model) out the Art Gallery fabric.



Court is on the 25th. I am hoping to have the project done by then. Don't you think I'll look great with the cute skirt and the heels? Today I cut out all the fabric and interfacing pieces for the project. I'd start sewing, but my good sewing machine is at work. I'd rather not use the Janome for a project like this. I think I'll stick with my Singer HD-110. :)

Let us see when it is done. I asked my daughter if she wanted me to make her a new skirt for school. She looked at me like I was from another planet. Well I meant a new skirt for church while we were getting her ready for school. Anyway she bought a skirt but I would still like to make her one. This one you are making is super cute.

That skirt is so cute! What pattern number is it?

The pattern is a New Look 6345. It's marked "easy" and the first half was, but now that I'm putting in the waistband it's a little trickier.
