A Good Start
Thanks for all the compliments on the Jalie top. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who gets the winter blahs and craves some color!
Between all the errands I ran today, I was able to get the skirt cut out and upper back section constructed! So far, so good:
I found a neat print in my collection of cotton prints for the waistband facing and pocket linings, since I was a bit short on the corduroy to cut out those extra pieces:
I'm hoping to finish this skirt this weekend. There is a lot of topstitching, but if I can finish the front welt pockets and the zipper tomorrow, I should be able to show you the finished outfit on Monday.
Parting Shot: Bargain. It is not too early to think about Easter dresses, so I've been watching online sales and the clearance at Jo-ann's for off season fabric deals. Today, I was able to take my daughter with me and she picked out this pink embroidered rayon/linen which ended up being $3.50 per yard. We bought 4 yards, plus the Simplicity pattern for the dress and after my other discount ended up paying only $13.33 for *all* of it. The original cost *per yard* of the fabric was $14.99.
