Bird Skirt

Did I really not write about this one?  Sometimes I really, really wonder about my brain.

Anyway, here is another skirt made from fabric that came to the States from Haiti with us when I was little.  This is an interesting batik.  You may recognize it from other projects.

The waistband is elastic in the back, shirred in the front.  It has pockets.  I drafted and made it one day when I couldn't get it out of my head.  I think it is pretty perfect for the sailor trend this summer.  It is shorter than I usually go but the shop is having that effect on me...

love love love love love.

new place in the fall means hopefully a room for my sewing machine and some lessons. (plus, of course, a cozier kitchen?)

have been dying for an update on your blog, it is such a fun read... especially considering Emerson was at my wedding for goodness sake!

and do tell me, is that your wall??

Thanks Ladies!!
Lindsey- one- the book is super easy and fun, thought this skirt didn't come from that, but out of my own crazy brain.
two-yes- that is the wall in our bedroom. John painted it for me from a drawing I gave him (a very rough drawing) because he is awesome.

Uhhhhhhhh....whoa. I just cannot begin to tell you how in love I am with this skirt. The fabric is CRAZY beautiful and I adore the shirt that you paired it with. And that wall - dear God you are a lucky woman!

Thanks Kimberly! I am pretty lucky, did you see the wall he painted for our son?
