Yesterday, hot on the heels of my pillowcases victory, I started up another quick and easy project: a simple skirt. This turned out to be a mild variation of my "no-pattern tube skirt" that I've made up a few times last year where I take either 2 or 3 yards, sew it into a tube, cut off excess then hem and put in an elastic waistband ... or if I want to get fancy like my red petticoats for Renn Faire, pleat the top into a waistband. I wasn't feeling fancy last evening or this morning, so simple elastic waistband it is:
As for the proverbial wild hair ... everyone has probably figured out I hate housecleaning, *but* I wanted to find a specific summer knit top to wear with this new skirt. I haven't seen it since this past September ... so what started as a shirt hunt morphed into a massive clothing-sort of all my warm-weather stuff. I have another full bag of clothing to donate, and a whole heap of laundry to wash ... and a big bare spot that hubby won't help but notice when he gets home. Once I get that top washed and dried I can take a shower, because even though it's called "cleaning" I always end up so dirty after doing it.
The next big question will be "What do I want to sew now?"
