Sew much for that.....

April showers bring May flowers.

Yea .......... not so much!

I do have to say .... the flowers look good.  They are growing nicely.  Carefully concealed in the camouflage that most people call ............ weeds.  I'm hiding them all! ;)

So my gardening anxiety is in full bloom!  When will I get this bed cleaned or when will this flat of plugs get planted?  And of course, the phone and email is in full gear .........When will you open for flower picking???

Actually, I need to stop my bitchin'.  We have been very blessed here!  We have had much less rain than many in our area.  If you travel less than an hour south of Donahue ..... it is much much worse.  So a couple of dry days will get the garden and lawn in order.  I hope! 

When the garden anxiety hits .... I need to focus on something else.  Anything else!!!

So ............ I sewed!

One of my students had made this pattern in a class and I loved it!!!!

(OK -- I liked it because I got to use the word godet in a sentence!!!)

Fortunately, this was easy enough that I could wash and straighten the fabric, layout the pattern, mark and cut it out and sew the skirt ................... in 24 hours!

Uhhhh .............'cept for the hem.  I need pinning help for that!

But a few pics ...... well, you may not see much.  It kind of looks like a full sack when it is hung from a hanger. 


Yep!!  Pretty much looks like a sack!  A pretty sack ..... but a sack nevertheless!



 
If you look carefully, you can see one of the godets!

(I could say that all day!!!  Now if I could ever use leg-o-mutton or peplum in a sentence ..... I would be thrilled!!!!  The most descriptive word in fashion at this time is ........... skinny jean!)

Well ........... at least I get to see flowers.


Even if they are in my closet!

You don't need anyone to mark your hem for you!! What are you, in 4-H??? The hemlines here in Budapest are obviously not marked by anyone! Just sayin'...
