Pigeon Fashion Show...

If you happened to read my post about my little black jacket you might remember reading something about the pigeons watching my fashion show... Well I think they are fed up with my fashion. One tried to let me know that they think my idea of fashion is, well... CRAP. It seriously tried to take a dump on me. Stinking bird. Well I didn't let that stop me from taking a few pictures of my most recent adventure in clothes making.

I got a sewing machine for my birthday (I have been wanting one for about a million years)
Thanks to my wonderful family they all donated to the Ashley's Sewing Machine Fund... which opens up another sector of creative freedom. (I had a joke going with my husband that it was probably a good thing I didn't have a sewing machine because that would mean the a whole other side of the craft store would now be open to me)

I have done a little bit of sewing here and there, mostly in Home Ec. class. I sewed an
awesome patch work pillow that year. I have also given my Mom's machine a try but most of the time it had tension issues. So I was thrilled to play on my new machine and try out some of these great projects I have been seeing on blogs everywhere.

I decided that a skirt would be a great place to start. It's not always easy to find a good skirt that fits the way it should and is knee length. So I got an idea in my head and started to go for it. I learned a lot as I went along. Lucky for me I thought ahead and bought 2 yards of fabric just in case I messed up :) Oh and did I mess up. I learned a lot about measuring out extra fabric for elastic waist skirts.


But here is the final product.






A few months ago I also made these little goodies. Crochet is too hot to sport in the AZ heat so I tried something a little different with these two.

Oh my goodness! I love it all! I cannot believe you made such a cute skirt! You were just lying to us about not knowing how to sew, weren't you?

I just found your blog! and I am loving it... I was just wondering if you had a pattern for the tan vest and if not could you possible tell me where I can find it.
