Summer Skirts

My mom and my sister are making skirts to wear this summer. I am noticing a green trend in my family right now (as I sit here now in my green shirt). Although I don't think I would wear this particular skirt style myself, I think the fabric is so fun and summery and they will look great when they are done.





Their sewing project has reminded me of the fabric and pattern I have tucked away somewhere for a summer dress. The only sewing I have done recently has been tailoring clothes and a little quilting. This summer might be the summer to finish old projects...but that is so hard because there are so many new projects out there to start, too!

What pattern are they using? I like the blue and green fabric a LOT! Im trying to stick with a vow not to start anything new for at least 3 months! Eek!

It's called the Lipstick Skirt...I think the designer is Bananafana...It's waaay cute and flirty. I think they say it's a modern skirt with a touch of whimsy....Sounds perfect, right?

it must be contagious! I have been on a skirt quest as well.

My skirt is done!! So quick and easy it is almost a sin. I LOVE IT! It has about a 7" flat panel from waist to hips and then becomes a flirty, gathered skirt. I am over 50 and it is still fun to twirl in this skirt (no worries, I do this in private).
