It was a long day at work today. In at 7:00 am...home by 8:00 pm. I was excited to watch the Voice finale (called it! Way to go Josh Kaufman!) I also was excited to spend some time in my studio. I cranked out a simple striped knit skirt that will be fun to wear this summer. It feels good to be working in my room and using up the stash...especially since the fabric fairy will being making a drop this week!

Or so says the sign in my studio. Today I created something. I holed up in my room and sewed while watching Silhouette Pattern webcasts until my dress was done...completely. Granted it was a simple knit dress...McCall's 6612 view B. I had a simple striped knit. From layout and cutting to finished hem, it probably took me 3 hours, including a quick break to make lunch and a potty stop for the dogs. It is still quite chilly here in the high desert, so long sleeves are still appropriate. Here it is modeled by Valentine.
The Chief is the best studio buddy ever. I will miss her when she moves to Texas!
