Maxi Skirts

I have been sewing in the last week. Not just sewing, sewing maxi skirts. They are trendy, they are comfortable and they are perfect summer wear... so I figure it was a good thing to learn.

I ended up making two different skirts on two different days with two different friends. First, my friend Sarah helped me make one this last Friday. I went and picked out the fabric at Joanne's. I liked this green fabric. The rest of the evening... Sarah helped me sew this puppy. I think it turned out great. It is cute and comfy. In fact... I think I will wear it tomorrow. :)

The next maxi skirt I sewed with Monica. She had made one with some girls in her ward that were teaching how. It was so popular that they decided to do it the next week as well and Monica was nice enough to invite me along. Even though I had just made one... this one looks different and is different fabric... it was also made differently. Mostly it was just an excuse to hang out with Monica. We don't see each other enough these days. I love spending time with her. Always have.

Here we are with our finished skirts!

I love my maxi skirts and will be wearing them a lot this summer. :)

Good job Tracy! I can't wait to sew again once we are all moved and settled! You will have to teach me :)

Nice work, sister. I should make stuff for myself. Sigh.
