A New Skirt For Me!

Hello Peeps~
I know out here in Blogland, there's this nifty thing called Wordless Wednesday's. That sounds great, but I'm no good without words. I'm working on it, y'know, being so wordy... people have told me that when they read something that I've written, it's exactly like listening to me talk. Same inflection, same tone, same rambling on and on, the whole nine.

Sigh... Well, I can't help it, but today I'll try to be as wordless as possible.

Sew (hehe, pardon the pun) over the weekend, not only did I embroider that dahling little teapot potholder that you'll see if you kindly scroll down, I also made a skirt... from scratch!! It's actually my first garment ever. And I didn't have a pattern, I just copied a simple drawstring skirt that I've had forever and is really comfy - oh yeah - I'm trying to be wordless! Enough with the bla, bla, bla... on with the pictures!

Measure, measure, measure... (as we say in construction, measure twice, cut once.)

Ooh, batik... pretty!

Press, press, press...

Sew, sew, sew...

Embroidering button holes for the drawstring...

See, like this... not too neat, but I was going for completion. Not perfection.

Everything is nicer with a pink bow...

Hee hee! It's done! Now the big question... will it fit?


Taa Daaa! I love it! I'm sew (hehe) wearing this to work!!

What a great skirt! I'm so (I mean "sew") impressed that the first garment you made for yourself fit! And the fabric is just adorable, too!

Hi Lisa! Like Angela, I too am so impressed!
That little skirt came out just adorable! I'm so bad when it come to actually sewing anything. I have a bench skirt that I started about two years ago, and it's still unfinished, and whenever I buy pants that need a hem, they hang in the closet forever until I get to them...yet I sew almost every day...go figure! I'd love to try a skirt like that, and you did it without a pattern...THAT'S SO COOL!!! Keep up all this great stitching! Hugs, Paulette :oD
