So about a month ago I finally tried my hand at sewing with elastic thread and I made my towel dress for Lake Powell. It didn't turn out exactly perfect (Missy, stop laughing) but it worked and it got me really excited to try another project with shirring. Well, I have the pattern from MADE to make a little girl's dress- but I don't have a little girl. I keep thinking I should make a dress for one of my many nieces, but I think I'll make this Summer Skirt for myself first (when you look at the post, scroll down to the bottom for the link to the tutorial) . Dana makes the skirt in a cotton fabric, but I think it would be really cute to make with a knit. We'll see when I can get to it... I promised myself (and my husband) no new projects until laundry was all caught up, the kitchen floor is mopped, and started projects get finished!
