I love wearing skirts in the summer. I especially like them with sandals or flip flops. But as much as I like to wear them, I only had 2 kick around summer skirts. So I bought some fun cotton fabric and made 2 simple summer skirts this past week. Easy-Peasy! Skirts are fun....slips are not. So, I skirted the issue and lined both of them! In case you're interested, the pattern is New Look 6494. It's a line from Simplicity. I did make the waist band with a casing and I used elastic instead of the twill tie the pattern suggested. I'm planning on wearing them with tee shirts and blouses....no tucking required!
I also really want to thank all of you for your sweet comments on my mother in law's birthday post. I showed them all to her and she was overwhelmed. She just couldn't get over the warm wishes and the kind words! You all are great!
