I managed to stitch up a few things in Colorado like...
Pillow cases for Kelby's birthday when he got his big boy bed...
and two dresses that I'm reaallly hoping will fit Abby on her September birthday
Once here in UB, I was inspired to download this pattern
to make this skirt
from a cotton sari length I had bought in Singapore a few years back. They wash up beautifully! Soft with nice drape. AND I remember paying less than 5 USD for it :D Yes, I bought a stack for gifts, table covers, etc. I probably should have done a wrap skirt to do justice with the print's sari layout, but I'm really picky about wraps--no surprises in the wind, you know? I couldn't seem to find a mock wrap, so it is what it is. This one is fairly straight with darts, side zip and side slit. I wore it out last night and like it lots.
Well, off into the day. Need to start thinking about packing--Venice by the end of the week--God willing and Aeroflot flies! Ciao!
