Springy weather means skirt weather. I'm kind of bored with all of my skirts, so I decided I'd make a few more for spring. This is the first of, hopefully, many to come.
It's Simplicity 7229 made from some vintage fabric that was gifted to me a while back. This skirt is so very simple. I first made this skirt almost two years ago. It's been a love-hate, so I decided to try it again ... I think there will be more.

On Saturday morning I awoke with an itchy-burny rash all over my body. I only noticed the itchy arms at first, but after my shower I realized my whole front was covered in red welts. The only thing I can think of is the new "he" laundry detergent I had to buy recently for our new washer/dryer set. I religiously wash our bedsheets every Friday and this was the first time I used the new detergent to wash our sheets. I spent all of Saturday itching and scratching and trying to stay awake while under the influence of Benadryl. 10:30 p.m. Saturday night I decided I could not sleep in those sheets again, so I stripped the bed and found some old sheets to put on the bed. I'm still itchy. I also spent yesterday morning re-washing all the clothes I have worn in the past two weeks in different detergent. (Not 100% sure that new stuff is non-itch-proof either.) I had to stay indoors on Sunday because I had no clean clothes to wear! I have a pair of pajamas that I don't wear often (therefore not washed recently) and stayed in them all day.
(Spenser had a few red dots on her cheeks last week after I washed her sheets and Jackson had some yesterday ... Both are fine now. I'm the only one still itching.)
