Happy St. Patrick's Day! Have you been pinched yet? I have a bunch of little munchkins around here with a bunch of little pinchers, so I rolled out of bed to find anything green to adorn. ;)
I have lots of mottos. Like, When all else fails, sneak into the closet and eat the rest of the girl scout cookies before anyone catches you. Or, If worse comes to worse, just sprinkle cheese or glitter on it, depending on the appropriateness of the situation. I should write a book. A book of mottos by Katy Dill.
My latest motto is, When in doubt, make a circle skirt. Obviously there was no doubt here. Pencil all the way. Actually, I bought this fabric with the intent to make a circle skirt, but as I began the beading (before I cut it out) I realized that it's just really heavy fabric. I'd be sweating and weighted down trying to manage the whole 2 yards of it.
I bought it at an upholstery shop that was changing locations for a nice discount. I kind of get giddy with home dec fabrics. Just ask...well, you could ask Drummer, because he's usually the one with me, but I'm sure my mom and my sister could vouch for such giddiness.I had planned to bead every single moth (butterfly?), but after several hours on one, I figured I probably just ought to sew it up and maybe work on it a bug at a time, here and there (read: probably never). But I do like those googley eyes staring up at me.
I have very few pencil skirts in my wardrobe because they take so much more fitting than a circle skirt. I am not symmetrical, so it's not a case of taking my measurements and sewing something up. In fact, my waist and hip measurements are 2 sizes apart, so it's always a guess as to how a pattern is going to fit. More information that you probably wanted to know. ;)Oh, and there's a backside, too. This is my did you get a picture yet? look. I didn't match the side seams because the repeat in the pattern was about every yard, but I did match the back seam. You know. In case anyone looks. ;)
