July "Extra" Project
This is what I'll call an emergency project, LOL. Remember the 1940s Blouse I made for June, I think? Well, I couldn't stand the first red pencil skirt that I made to go with it. It was a thrifted table cloth and I got beside myself when cutting it out. Decided I wanted it more "form fitting" . . . shooot, I sewed that skirt up and could hardly get it over my hips. To top it all off, there was a stain, or some kind of paint on it that I could not remove. Oh, I wore it the afternoon that I made it while vowing to make another.
Decided to hand sew one while visiting with my new granny. I like this one much better. :-)
As usual, click for pics and details if you will.
P.S. Stay tuned for the completion of my original July garment: the hand sewn Regency day dress. I'm just about done, simply need some finishing touches; i.e., sleeve hem and front closure.
