Summer Clothing

We've been sewing this past week as well as gardening since this week is our spring break. I thought I would share with you some of this things I made.
I love the black and white of this skirt there are flowers in white all over and I finished the hem off with little white lace.

I love the lightness of this fabric it will be cool to wear this summer and the peonies on it makes it even nicer. I refurbished lace off of a tiered skirt and had enough to trim this one and the next one.

This one is a light green and just as light. I love this pattern, it is Simplicity 2609 and also has a tiered skirt. I have two skirts cut for that and will hopefully be able to get to this this weekend.

I finished another skirt but before we could get a picture I dropped a big bottle of hand soap from the top shelf in the bathroom, so about 7 ft and it splattered me, the floor, the wall, the cabinet door, and the stool I was standing on. It was all so funny really I was happy with myself for not to getting upset over spilt soap :0) since I couldn't stop it.

But I still have 3 blouses peasant style, 1 apron, and 2 tiered skirts to finish. Then we will see what if I am still itching to sew and maybe I'll sew some more. Oh and a church dress for Ash.

We planted flowers today lots of them and the garden is planted some we are hoping to finish most of it Saturday morning and mid day. Before and between conference sessions for church.

Hopefully I will be able to post pictures before next weeks Plain and Simple.

Have a blessed day and weekend...

    I was just thinking how busy you've been, too! :)

    I love all the skirts, so pretty and feminine!



  3. You really have been busy sewing. Love the skirts. I'm going to have to find some time to sew me some jumpers for summer, too.
