Mabel and I looked through my fabric stash the other day for fabric to match an orange t-shirt of hers. I have lots of pieces with orange in them, but this was the only one that looked good with the t-shirt. Dean brought me this fabric when he came back from a trip to Finland several years ago. It’s actually decorator fabric, as were the other pieces he brought home–he didn’t know the difference, but I liked all the pieces, anyway.
It’s been a long time since I’ve finished a sewing project in one evening. The whole project went smoothly, I had an audio-book to listen to, and it was a completely pleasant evening. I can’t wait to take photos of Mabel wearing the skirt tomorrow. And there’s enough fabric for a skirt for Rose, too.
