Skirts! Yay!

It was tough to get a good photo of these while they were flat (not on my body) but I am SO thrilled that they are done and with how cute they turned out! I'm still trying to work my way through my *many* UFO's but what a fantastic feeling to get a couple done - yay me! Teehee...anyway, I won't tell you how embarrassingly long ago I cut these out but I will tell you that I used the Versatile Wrap Skirt Pattern from Toni Coward over at Make It Perfect (love love love her, sad sad sad she lives so far away). I love how easy this pattern is - except for turning the waist band ties but I get why that's the way to do it. The only change I made was this - I attached the bottom band on the assembled skirt pieces and then folded over and topstitched the skirt and bottom band all together (on the short ends of the skirt). If you read through the pattern this will make more sense - Toni has you finishing them separately and I tried it that way but I didn't like how the stitching didn't match up once they were joined. Doing it my way makes for one continuous line of stitching, which makes my OCD sew-er oh so happy!

We're off to Big Canoe today to visit some friends for the day and enjoy some time away from our sweltering courtyard - kiddie pool here we come! Hope you fine something sweet and cool in your day too!
