Deer and Doe Chardon #2

When I started obsessively Instagramming my latest sewing projects (like pillow covers and knitting needle rolls), my bestie Alyssa texted me and said "Can you make skirts, too? Seriously. I want to hire you to make a bunch for me."  

Challenge accepted.

I made a few changes to the original pattern, like gathering instead of pleating, and folding the facing over halfway instead of all the way.  (Last week, I was all like "What's a facing?!" And now I'm all like, "Oh, I totally decided to fold the facing over halfway to accommodate for the gathers." like a damn pro.)

I apologize for the wrinkles - the light was pretty, and I was between editing sessions so I quickly took the skirt outside to photograph it.  It just seemed like a good time to take pictures. The fact that I just got a new lens today had simply nothing to do with it.  Nothing*.


Today I leave you with two of my latest pottery pieces from when I learned to throw cylinders.  I'm going to eventually get some soy wax and make a candle out of the blue one, and the white one is yet another tea light holder.  

Fabric: Freshly Cut Hyacinths from the Leah Duncan Meadow collection.



    I LOVE IT! seriously. name your price. you're hired.

  2. I have literally *just* discovered your blog. Love the photos, and the Moneta dress. My, so pretty. I don't do any sewing for myself, but you are certainly making me feel like I should. I'll visit again :-)
