We leave for our six month adventure in just 32 days. So what have I spent the last week doing? Sorting? Culling? Cleaning? No. Sewing skirts.
It all started last Thursday when a friend mentioned over coffee that she had once made a wrap skirt with velcro instead of a tie. It was like a light-bulb of possibility went off in my head. I made a wrap skirt last year but found that the tie annoyed me. I’ve been wanting to make an a-line skirt but the thought of sewing a zipper put me off. But velcro! Of course. As soon as Ed was napping that day I cut one out.
After that one I did a little online research and came up with another zipperless a-line pattern. With pockets!
That was a success so I made two more. Lillian requested one the same but we’ll try not to wear them together.
I have more ideas swirling in my head (a fuller version of the pocket one) and more fabric ready and waiting (these were all made with stash) but I’m thinking I probably need to focus on the task at hand now. I mean, how many skirts do I really need to pack?
