SIMPLE HAND - SEWN FLORAL SKIRT





LOOK MA ,
I DID IT AGAIN !
HOPEFULLY BETTER THIS TIME !







Another hand-sewn skirt . This time I added real pleats and hope they hold ! I cut off the bottom of another floral dress and stitched a few pleats into the top . It slid on perfectly, and the belt holds it really snug . I will soon learn how to add zippers , thanks to my Mom. I usually go for elastic , but with the pleats , the elastic wasn't needed ( yet ).

RAMBLINGS :
I read a blog yesterday about a girl who was getting stuck in routine , and at the end of the week , she couldn't remember what she did with her time . She suggested trying something new today , and Creating a memory . So , I am up before 8:30 A.M. -an Olympic Record in my book ( let's face it - that's as exciting as the real Olympics this year ) !  I am going with someone to the hospital for bloodwork , and give moral support , then taking them out to brunch !  At least it's Different , and who knows where the day will take us !

My husband and I watched The Diary of Anne Frank last night . TCM is showing a month of Oscar winning movies this month . Shelley Winters won Best Supporting Actress . Boy , did I feel Grateful and Sad all at the same time . I felt ashamed of having cabin fever this winter . Anyhoo...........



I added red beads , a purple turtle-neck and my fav. tights. My hat has a 70's flower pin attatched .
Simple hoop earrings and boots with socks.

Have a Grateful Day !
