New Vintage Wardrobe: Pink Dogwood Skirt

Day 70
Originally uploaded by becktress.
My favorite model wears a newly-made-by-me skirt from vintage fabric — a birthday present for her. These skirts work up really fast now. I can almost finish one during naptime on a good day. The lovely pink fabric came from the same stash as the red Hawaiian.

I'm reading an old book called Pants for Any Body by this author. It's about altering a commercial pants pattern to fit your body. They suggest using 1/4 inch gingham as a first draft to get your exact mesurements. It's a great book so far. My fear of pants is waning.

The measure of a skirt is a nap time - love the skirt!

You are definitely a skirt veteran now. That is such a cute skirt. I can't wait to see you tackle pants.

Nice gift! Love the vintage fabric! It's amazing what we can do during our children's naptime when we decide to do something.

I DREAMT about you and your sister the other night. It really is her fault you know. In the dream I was wearing a nice cute frock and she WAS NOT. How's that for envy/revenge sneaking it's way out in my dreams.

Oldround-that sounds like a dream I would have enjoyed!

You'll get pants in no time. I drafted a pair of pants once using an enormous number of measurments and some of my half buried math skills and they came out so perfectly. It's really amazing how wonderful the results can be when you take the time to custom draft clothes.

good luck, can't wait to see the results too.
