Hmmm….yes, I have the Splendid sampler quilts in the works, and a coat for Girl#1 on the books, but now it is time to do some more sewing for me! No occasions coming up, so it will be something I can wear to work…I think I’ll give this pattern a whirl. It needs a test run before I use it on some lovely brocade wool I found at the Fabric Warehouse in Mitchell, SD; I’m sure it’s the fabric mecca of the US!!!! Haha!
I have two options for my trial run, a plain slate gray twill, or a mini houndstooth check in gray and charcoal. I have enough of each to do a skirt or pants…hmmm. While doing the pre wash, I discovered or rediscovered that the mini houndstooth has a bit of stretch…perfect for pants, so the skirt will be the twill.
So not the most exciting project, but I envision this being a wardrobe staple. I have plenty of wool skirts, but not much in the mid season category, so this will be a welcome addition.
A great project for this weekend!
