While digging through the corners the other day,
I discovered this skirt fabric I had put into the someday pile.
And now it is done!
It is a simple a-line skirt that I adjusted from a zippered side
to a pull-on elastic waisted skirt.
It fits my lifestyle better this way since I never tuck in a shirt!
I also had purchased yardage to make a slip for this
and several other light peasant skirts I like to wear.
I only have a slip for knee length skirts and wearing this skirt without a full slip wasn't an optio;
you will see why below.
The skirt is a border print which is very cool.
I added a bit of pre-gathered embroidered edging to the slip;
this also adds some weight which is a nice addition to such lightweight cotton.
You can see here how ethereal the fabric is!
I will wear the skirt properly modest now!
I did some painting but it isn't finished;
that is one thing I wasn't aware of when I started watercolor several years ago--
it is why I quit trying, too--
I didn't know about letting areas dry, adding layers,
being patient while painting has become part of why it is so relaxing now!
A doubly good lesson, right?
Yesterday's painting was from Chesapeake Beach, VA, from Araignees' blog!
