I finally carved out some time to sew up a few skirts to donate for Skirting the Issue! As you have probably read in the news (if you read that sort of thing), WA state has been having a heat wave as well as much smoke from wildfires in Canada. WA state isn’t known for it’s hot weather, so keeping cool inside has been, uh challenging to say the least. Unfortunately, my sewing area is not cool, and I had to figure out the coolest time of day and the perfect angle of the fan to get this done.
On the up side, I usually have all sorts of fun novelty prints in my stash (they are my weakness- especially food fabrics). I find they are perfect for these fun skirts.
There was only a little bit of this muffin fabric in there, but it was enough to make this size 6 skirt. I used this handy dandy sizing chart that Simple Simon & Company offers FREE every year.
I found that nacho fabric at the Sew Expo this past year and was saving it for something special. I’d say this qualifies! These are 4 size 10 skirts all ready to go.
Hope all of you are staying cool!!
