The She-Still-Sews ?? Skirt

Yes. I still sew. I hadn't sewn in awhile because my serger and I had a falling out. I said some things I shouldn't have and she wasn't very happy with me. I decided it was best that we both part our ways and take a breather from each other. And it was the right thing to do because now we're friends again.

Last Saturday we were invited to my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary party. It was a casual afternoon luncheon at a local Irish Pub/Restaurant. (My cousin's wife is the manager there.) Just the night before I decided I should wear a new skirt.

I guess it's hard to see, but it's made from a vintage sheet. The skirt is a basic A-line with a tie waistband and zipper. I think I did a rolled-hem along the bottom. (I can't remember.) I wore it Saturday to the luncheon, Sunday to church, and Monday for a town meeting.

I was wondering if you were sewing because I missed it a lot. Very cute skirt.

super cute skirt as always! How many does that make now? I loved it last year when you gave a skirt count in one post. I think you are the queen of skirts - and especially vintage sheet skirts!

I love this skirt, especially the tie back. I wish I had a smaller waist/hips for this type of skirt! It's so cute!!
