a well earned nap, and a skirt to boot!
Remember those linens I found at (sotto voce) JoAnn's?
Actually, I only went to find something that might go with the pale green linen I already had (former very wide-legged pants that had lost its elastic and made me look huge anyway), but when I found that awesome print, the skirt project veered in a whole other direction.
anyway... after a couple of setbacks (never try to follow a pattern late at night), sleeping on it, waking multiple times with ideas on how to fix it,
and then toiling away in the sunny studio (note coffee AND tea mugs),
I finally got a finished product:
It goes nicely with the autumn, don't you think?
The sun today is giving me multiple lighting options.
Sometime when I'm less tired I want to write about making clothes from patterns. This experience tested me. And I've had plenty of pattern experience, but every one seems to be written in a slightly different language, and that will be the thesis for my rant.
So, now, a nap (hopefully) before wearing new skirt on a date with my husband while the kids are off with their Tanti. She's teaching them how to be more helpful around the house:
Love something that is linen today. the weather is ripe for it.
