Completed an easy sweater skirt and Bamboo tee shirt.
After Gertie's fitted dress I had to do some quick and easy things!
Reality is I will wear these all the time! In fact I am wearing them now as I write!
I LOVE this rayon sweater knit!!!!!! It came from a thrift store find! I wish it came from a store so I would know were to find more!!!!
It already was a skirt but it was too long and too tube-like.
I cut off about 5 or 8 inches at the top, took off about 2 inches on the sides at the top grading to the full width at hips and made a waist band with the sweater knit on the outside and a very stretchy swimsuit type fabric on the inside (I think I used the mabel skirt's waistband for this).
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new bamboo tee shirt - sooo soft and the right color!!!!! I made 2 other tee shirts from my TNT pattern at this time because I really needed them. Sometimes, I got to just make what I need not only what I want! or make what I need BE what I want!

So that the compass of your soul
Might direct you toward
The territories of spirit
Where you will discover
More of your hidden life."
