I Really Missed My Kids

And my sewing machines. Last weekend was awful, my heart goes out to the family, it was such a tragic senseless lost. I was really happy to be home and you can bet I gave my kids and GS a lot of kisses and made sure to tell them I love them.

I really needed to sew this weekend, I've wanted to make this skirt for quite awhile and finally got around to it, it's my own vintage pattern, meaning I purchased it back in the 80's it's Butterick 5863. I made the jacket and top but never the skirt.

I don't know why I waited but maybe it was until I had this belt, it goes great with the skirt. The fabric is cotton twill from JoAnns.

I have the blouse cut out and waiting, maybe I'll get to it before next weekend.

Now I'm off to see what everyone else has done with their weekend.

Be Blessed.

Nice skirt, and perfect belt. I like the stripe fabric you have chosen for a blouse to go with it.
