I made this skirt several weeks ago, but never could find the time to photograph it. Well, I had a nice post planned for today so that you guys wouldn't think that I had given up on blogging. Then at the last minute it fell through. I am still hoping to have it up in the next few weeks, but we will see. I decided to wear the skirt this morning and have some quick photos snapped, so that I would have something to share here. Miller took these photos for me and I didn't realize I looked so mad until I uploaded them onto the computer.
Anyways, back to the skirt. I have had this fabric in my stash for at least 2 years maybe even longer. I finally decided it was time to use it. I followed this tutorial and had the skirt finished in an evening. I didn't have quite enough fabric to make an extra wide waistband. I might end up adding some elastic to the waistband because it is starts getting droopy by the end of the day.
We have been working on the former TV room. We decided to make it into a playroom for the kids. We painted the walls, trim, and ceiling last weekend. So now we just need to get a rug and some window treatments. Then decide which furniture is staying and what is going. The plan is to have a garage sale this weekend. If we can get rid of some of the stuff cluttering up my house maybe I can FINALLY have my house looking half way put together.
