In Love With A-line
I just can't get enough of these A-line skirts! I've had Butterick 3262 in my pattern stash for years (I have no idea why I purchased it in the first place!), but I only "discovered" it about a year ago. I've only used the "medium flare" version, but I'd like to try out the fullest version, too!
For this skirt I used a stretchy khaki fabric from Wal-Mart ($2 per yard, as I recall). I've already made one skirt from this fabric, and the rest was sitting in my stash. I ended up having enough to add a bias ruffle, just for fun. I love my serger even more when I'm hemming bias ruffles!
Well, the moving craziness continues! There are boxes (both packed and empty) and paper everywhere. I'm discovering that several hundred books require many, many boxes! But I love all the bustle and excitement, especially when things run smoothly (as they have -- so far...). It's amazing to see God's hand at work in the little bumps in the road -- from finding a home to rent, to having our house inspection go well, to discovering boxes at our local recycle center! The blessings never end!
