Me-Made-Week Take 1

YEAH! Today is October 1, 2014 and I have officially completed my one year challenge of no ready-to-wear purchases (for myself) for the year.

I have dedicated this week to a me-made-week. So, I will be posting each day this week with an item I have sewn.

Today is a really easy day. Having my own business and working from home at time presents a challenge as far as what to wear goes. It is really easy to throw on some sweats or a house coat, but in order not to let myself go completely I have several very easy skirts that work well for my work at home wear.
This skirt is made out of a cotton stretch fabric that was purchased several years ago from JoAnn’s. It is one of my go to items when Phil and I travel to the Caribbean or cruise. I started making these little skirts about ten years ago when we vacationed in Maui and have continued making them.

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo very proud of your steadfastness to complete your goal. I’ve enjoyed the pics you’ve posted, & how you’ve included Phil in your comments ( you do love Phil Lol). So what’s your goal for 2014?

    • Ha ha ha . . . Don’t tell Phil let’s keep him wandering 🙂

      Not sure yet about 2014. I still have a lot of learning to do, so one thing for sure is that I am going to keep the sewing up. I have several projects in my head that I need to get started. And being in my head is a scary place!
