I Forgot To Mention...

I made a new background!  I used this stock photo and edited it using a combination of Powerpoint and Pixlr.  I also tweaked the color palette of the entire blog a bit.  I am by no means a digital artist or a graphic designer at this point, but I'd love to keep dabbling, so one day I can start designing my own fabric.

Navy Pleated Skirt

I have been a terrible blogger.

Seriously, I pretty much disappeared all summer (my mental health was keeping me from sewing much) and then I got very busy with school and just haven't had time to post anything. 


I started this skirt back in June (or possibly July) but I had the worst luck with it and didn't finish it until early September.  First I pressed open a seam and discovered that the fabric scorches easily, which required a trip to Joann's to replace the fabric.  I then proceded to run out of lining fabric, thread, and hooks & eyes, and then break my sewing machine, so time just got away from me.

Now not only is it finished, but I've also taken pictures of it.
