I couldn't help it - had to make one more skirt for Taya to add to the box that was being packed with all the stuff that's being sent, because it didn't fit into her suitcases. (May-be I should have bought her a bigger suitcase?) Couldn't resist this fabric either.
A little while back I walked into Joyce's to teach a class, and there was a whole table full of new fabrics (cottons for quilting) in the most amazing prints. And the price was so reasonable. And... After class I picked 5 (notice - only 5, not the whole kit and kaboodle), and I took a metre and a half of each. (Turned out that a metre was a little skimpy for Taya's skirt - you didn't think I was going to actually use these for quilts, did you?) Taya was still here, and this is the one she chose (I knew she'd like this one).
My pet peeve lately (pet peeves change periodically) are hooks at the tops of zippers, especially on skirts. They're a "pain in the back". I think that you still need some "insurance" (zippers have been known to malfunction), especially on a skirt, so I've been playing around with button applications. On this one, it's a tab with a buttonhole. How lucky to have one perfectly matching button just lying around - like orange is a colour I sew so much of (ha!).
