Ahoy! I’m sewing!……….I’m sewing!………….I’m sewing! I sew! I’m a sewer! I sew! Ahoy!

Although I have to admit a blind 3rd grader could probably have cut two pieces of fabric out to make this skirt, I’m pretty darn pleased I have added one more item to my withering summer wardrobe.

One thing that is not withering is my tummy, which is happily announcing that there is a baby growing inside. There is a serious shortage of maternity patterns available, so I’ll be experimenting this summer with clothes-making on the fly.

      This one of several that kept popping into my head when I thought of how much I missed your blog, Shannon. That sassy looking skirt on your pregnant belly. You’re just amazing.

    Bravo *clapclapclapclap*!! This is an awesome skirt! Keep going Shannon. Sewing opens up worlds of creative, cost-saving solutions. And have you ever looked at Etsy? Oh my gosh, the baby/children clothing designs are fantastic, and reproduceable. Long skirts and loose shirts are the way to go for busy mamas. Plus they look hip. So happy for you!

    Love it! and Love you! and LOVE your little baby bump! You should make some of those pants out of the jersey fabric too…that’d be so comfy 🙂

      Keep sailing Bob!

      I love the skirt! I’ve always wished I had the patience to sew really awesome complicated things, but I don’t know how and sewing skirts is so easy and fun, I usually just stick with my two-trapezoids-and-a-drawstring design. 🙂 Judging by your mad quilting skills, though, I bet you’ll be awesome at sewing clothes. Just think! Matching Easter costumes for Naftalie and New Bebe!
