It’s taken me a few days to get pictures to post, but last week I had a marathon of sewing! I made a sundress, skirt, and shorts. The sundress is my own design and made from a salvaged cotton sari that Martha had gotten from a friend and no longer wanted. The fabric was stained and had holes in it, but I was able to cut around all of them. The dress has a kind of hippy, free-spirit feel to it that I like a lot.
This skirt is made of black linen purchased on a cruise last year in St. Thomas. My sweet husband always keeps his eyes open for fabric stores when we travel. This trip, I got lucky in St. Thomas, Aruba, and Dominica. Even when all I buy is a spool of thread, it is interesting to see what is available in other fabric stores. I do love fabric.
Alison brought the belt back from her travels last year. It is from Guatemala, hand woven in the beautiful, bright colors that I love.
Sorry, no pictures of the shorts.
