Hello, Blogging World. I have been peeking into your little windows for quite some time and have gained so much inspiration and cheer, I have decided to put up my own display, as it were.
I've never before published a blog, but I have produced 4 lovely children and managed a cozy home with my husband for nearly 19 years.
To begin my blogging, I will here lay down my efforts at following the Me-Made-March '11 challenge put forth by this inspiring blogger (http://sozowhatdoyouknow.blogspot.com/). My pledge is to wear at least 1 item (clothing, jewelry, handbag, jammies) either made entirely by me, or "re-purposed" by me every day during the month of March.
I hope to hone my blogging skills through trial and error and I gladly accept gracious critiques/advice from whomever stumbles across me.
So, back to the MMM challenge.
Fabric: Medium-weight Cotton, purchased 2 years ago, sat for ages.
I made the skirt about a month ago, lined it for a little extra warmth ( I live in Pacific Northwest, USA).
The double "flounce" added to the skirt bottom made this garment look like a bad wardrobe piece from Little House on the Prairie. I promptly removed it. I think my 5'4" frame just could not support that much skirt!
