New Skirt and Spring Color

I made another Ottobre Skirt for me.  The first one had the pleats, this one I used the front lining pattern piece for the fashion fabric and I have a nice flat-front skirt.  This fabric was leftover from a jacket I made a couple of years ago, it is a bit more of that Nanette Lepore fabric from a coop. I had planned on getting this finished for Easter but that didn't happen.





















Next some pretty spring color from my Bradford Pear tree and magnolia bush, which hasn't grown in 24 years.  That bush is the first thing I planted in our yard and that is about the size it started.

We are suppose to get frost tonight, so these might not be so pretty tomorrow.  I also went out and cut all the remaining daffodils in my garden and put them in a vase. 

 Jalie Sweetheart top was started tonight, looks pretty good so far.

  2. Love the skirt. Our storm with wind and rain knocked most of the blooms off our Bradford Pears and our Forsythia1!!

  7. Pretty Skirt and hanging my head in shame. I sewed a skirt & can't review it for the life of me can't recall the pattern and have pulled out all of my patterns to no avail... uggh

  8. Very nice skirt! Good to know that the front lining makes such a nice final project! I made the pleated version as well and it is a bit big--so MAYBE I will make this version sometime in the future!
