I’m pretty excited about how my foray into sewing has now merged with my newest potential hobby: barn dancing! (Fabulous, fabulous fun. My friend Marie was right — my mouth hurt from so much smiling!)
This morning I’d planned to make my last pair of swishy pants. However, when unrolling and rotating the fabric to match the pattern I became dismayed to realize that things were not going to turn out quite as I’d envisioned them to be. In fact, I was no longer sure I liked the fabric at all! Fortunately, Maggie — my friend and teacher — still liked it, so I gladly passed the fabric on to her, and we decided to try a new project.
I quickly latched on to the idea of making a skirt for barn dancing, since I’d enjoyed the experience so much the night before and hadn’t felt like I had quite the right dress for it. Maggie pulled out some skirt patterns from her plentiful stock, and I quickly fell for a swishy skirt pattern. Off to the fabric store we went!
After a store stop and a quick Thai lunch break, we came back with a beige linen fabric — and bonus — were able to actually squeeze TWO skirts out of the fabric!
Part I of the process is done: 1. Ditched old fabric and pattern 2. chose new pattern 3. picked out new fabric 4. cut fabric pieces 5. discovered fabric bonus!
In a couple weeks I will share back about Part II — and hopefully have a swishy skirt to share!
Much love and many blessings! ❤

Quite an interesting chapter this week in the Artist’s Way. Some of the tasks threw me off a bit. Going back to my childhood was a little interesting! Cameron gives a lot of lists of 5’s.
