Plugging Away

The new skirt is going well. This fabric has the perfect amount of drape for the side flounces and cut-on godets and a try-on after all seams were sewn tells me it's going to fit well. I really like girlie skirts but I hate pantyhose and heels so a casual skirt with a twirl factor is right up my alley. I can see that this is going to be a favorite pattern that I'll use many times.

As I near the completion of the skirt (while peeking at the football games) I'm starting to contemplate a top. I have a few ideas but nothing is decided yet. I can't decide whether to start with fabric or pattern and so I'm having a small case of analysis paralysis. I've still got a week to get it done. Hopefully, I won't dawdle those days away trying to come up with something.


  1. Debbie - I love that skirt and can't wait to see what you come up with to top it! Happy sewing - I'm headed to mine now :)

  2. That looks great so far, Debbie. I really like the fabric and the contrasting topstitching!

  3. I couldn't live without tights! It squishes in all my fluff :)
    Can't wait to see the skirt.
