I designed this beach dress

 hacked from a skirt pattern, 

so I am calling it a Skirtress.

I used a New Look 6470 skirt pattern. 

and the very last of this hot pink fabric!

Sew you later!

Hot Pink Dress

From this.......

to this.......a couple of hours...

I added 2 inches to the sleeves &
as this dress will be for the office,
kept it just below the knee.

the traveling skirt

Hello again Blog Friends!
Well I just returned from traveling & one of my fave
skirts went missing from London to Paris (my luggage
had a sticker on it saying it was a random check).
So what's a girl to do?......well sew up another one
of course, with the exact same fabric!

I used my New Look 6571 pattern & added in-seam pockets.

Oh & if you see my skirt walking around in Paris
this is the label inside ;)

Sew you later!

Denim Skirt

Today's skirt is made from denim.

Another "A" line skirt with a zipper flower that I made to
the top of the skirt.

The pink serge hem is just for fun
because I like pink!

Sew you later!
