Hot off the press


Here is proof that I really do wear what I make.  This is the wool skirt I just finished, paired with a T-shirt I modified from the Jalie sweetheart top.  The skirt is Simplicity 2605 view E, made with a wool plaid I picked up at the op shop for 50 cents and lined with a mystery fabric off the lining shelf.  I am really happy with how it turned out and it is nice and warm on this cold March day. You can see in the corner that Jo wanted to be included in the photo.  Here is how he usually looks at work...bored stiff!!!

Lovely outfit and you can't beat that price! Wool plaid is the best when the weather is cold and damp.

Cute skirt Mary! You couldn't wear it much wear I live. It's already time for air conditioning in Houston! Your dog is darling!
