This is the first piece of clothing I’ve made since my home ec class in the ninth grade. With this in mind, it took a great amount of courage and convincing to actually cut this Alexander Henry fabric I picked up from Purl Soho. However, I made a deal with myself (all of this inner monologue cannot be healthy?) that I couldn’t buy fabric without a clear vision and plan in mind for its future, because I recently spent hours and hours spring cleaning the studio (pics soon!). I was feeling a little gloomy on Friday–it was gray and cold–so I picked up this cheery fabric and cut. Thankfully, the project turned out well and was speedy! I based the pattern off of a skirt I already had and have plans to post that for you all soon. It took me about three hours and a yard and quarter of fabric. As far as craft projects go, this is a very rewarding and inexpensive one.
