The Patterned Skirt

The last weekend in July, I took a class at Home Ec. on how to make a bias skirt pattern and sew it. I've been wanting to make a pattern for a long time and there aren't really any places nearby where I can take classes. When I saw this class being offered,  I jumped at the chance!

The pattern we made is for a very simple elastic-waisted A-line skirt. We basically took our measurements and used them to draw a triangle shape. It was really simple and fun, and we were done with the pattern and sewing in less than 2.5 hours.

It was really sunny!
After I finished my class, Josh and I went camping at Sugar Bottom park. It's one of my favorite places to camp and that's where we took these lovely photos!

I'm already thinking of ways to play with the pattern. I'm not a huge fan of elastic waistbands, so I may try to draw a zipper back for the skirt!

Last weekend I visited my sister in Chicago and went to Lollapalooza! I gave my sister a version of the Colette Sencha blouse and we took pictures at the Chicago Art Institute. I will post those pictures soon!
