Zinnia Skirt in Turquoise Gauze

Oops! I just realized that I should have taken the photos with the zinnias in the background!
 Well, here is the Zinnia skirt in front of the cosmos!
 I have been working double time harvesting the garden and puttin' up food. I have not had much time to sew. This is one of the reasons this skirt was so satisfying to make - it was easy and FAST!
 Colette did it again with a great simple pleated lined skirt https://www.colettepatterns.com/‎!
 I added two inches on the length of the pleats, made up the short version and added a lining because the gauze is sheer and I have some other sheer fabrics in mind for the next one. Yep, this was my muslin! Mostly my muslins are not worthy of the camera and blog time!
I LOVE my sewing machine and her fancy detailing, and my serger and her great rolled hems!
"The flute of interior time is played weather we hear it or not.
What we mean by "love" is it's sound coming in.
When love hits the furthest edge of excess, it reaches a wisdom.
And the fragrance of that knowledge!"
Kabir
