Hello everyone! And…here it is. the Southwestern style skirt. I kept the style easy and the lines simple. The fabric itself has enough detail. I really like the way it came out. I made a matching scarf with the leftover material. I think it really ties in nicely. The skirt is fully lined and this time around I used buttons instead of placing a zipper. Reason being, that I didn’t want a back seam to break up the pattern.
I decided to add a fringe to it. It came apart easily and I like the texture it created. Fun!
One of my favorite features is pockets. I’m trying to inset them in just about everything I make now. They just add such comfort to any garment. I can’t help it, I feel secure with pockets. Silly, I know.
Here’s a close up look at the side seams with the pockets. It’s kind of tricky to line it up to the print. I really wanted it to match.
And finally, my beautiful mother fraying the scarf. She was just enjoying watching me, when I asked her if she wanted to try it and to my surprise she actually did. Wow! Talk about moments of lucidity. I love this picture. It was taken with my new camera which has a new feature that instantly turns a picture into a painting. I’ll treasure this moment forever.
