Dora the Explorer Doesn't Have Anything on Me

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Errrr, last week was the final week of classes for the fall semester.  I also traveled to New Orleans for a work conference for half the week.  Highlights of the trip (besides all the conference knowledge) included a cauliflower taco from Johnny Sanchez and perfect weather.   I have trouble sleeping in a hotel so I binged watched the latest season of Broadchurch and I perused Anthropolgie and Modcloth for sewing inspiration. During the 5 hour car ride home on Friday evening, in between bouts of conversation, I plotted my weekend sewing. I couldn't get a blue skirt from Modcloth out of my head.
Megan Nielsen Veronika Skirt Pattern (It's free!)
Size: Small

3.5 Yards of Navy Blue Cotton Poly Blend
7" Invisible Zipper

I wanted to sew something uncomplicated.   Since I have made this skirt here and here, this sew was an easy couple hour investment. Circle skirts are flattering and fun.
The hardest part of the pattern is leaving the dang thing to hang overnight before hemming.  Then my least favorite part is hemming a circle skirt.  It is worth it.
Ooohh, I love how it twirls. Perfect for work. My closet is full of navy and coordinating colors -- this will do nicely.
Not bad for a Saturday evening sew.
