Cupcake, as always, likes to be a part of as many pictures as possible. I made this skirt back when I was in the Spring for Cotton mode but decided that for the sew-a-long I would focus on the 1940's blouses because those were something new for me. Skirts, on the other hand, are the main focus of most of my sewing endeavors. I wish I could tell you what pattern I use or have used for most of my skirts but I really don't know anymore. The pattern has been cut and hacked and taped back together and cut down again so many times it no longer resembles the original pattern at all.
More exciting than wearing my skirt out of the house for the first time was WHO I got to spend that day with. Fabulous clothes are made even more fabulous when you get to wear them in the company of fabulous people. My dear friend Terri is one of the most fabulous people I know. FABULOUS!!! Unfortunately, she lives about 300 miles away from me so we don't get to see each other all that often. Consequently, each and every time we do get to see each other is that much more special.
We continued our day at a few other antique shops and had amazing food out on the deck of a local restaurant, washed down with margaritas. I didn't get many more pictures of our day because we were just too busy being together to worry about our phones or cameras. Not that we don't love our pictures, but it's our conversations and time just spent together that we really enjoy. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing friend in my life!!
Do you have a standard summer wardrobe 'formula'? What sort of shenanigans do you and your friends like to get in to? I'd love to hear from you.
