Remember Penguin shirts? Well, apparently the penguin is back and in much finer form under the label Original Penguin by Munsingwear. I fell in love with a couple of skirts.
The one on the left is ON SALE for $165! That is just crazy expensive. I decided to use the skirts as inspiration and make my own.
What folly! I couldn’t do the V-yoke or those cute little scallop dealies. Oh well, mine didn’t cost $165. I used for the centerpiece a little piece of Liberty of London fabric that Anna
sent me a while back. I then went to Fabric Depot
and spaced out for a really long time trying to find complementary fabrics. I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, but you know how that can be. So anyway, the reason I call it the garbage skirt is because the woman who cut the fabric for me asked me what I was going to make, and I said a tiered skirt with some stuff on it, and she proceeded to tell me that she loves to make skirts with all kinds of fabrics and stick a bunch of lace on them. She calls them her garbage skirts, I’m assuming because she uses all remnants. I thought that was great.
Okay, I’d better get back to sewing. My in-laws arrive tomorrow, so I need to get in some last-minute sewing! I might eat some ice cream first, though.
