#PinkApril Maxi Skirt
Musings of a Seamstress

Here is my contribution to the sewing rainbow!  This skirt is thanks to the wonderful ladies involved in #FabricChat!  This gorgeous chiffon fabric has been sitting in my stash for nearly a decade!!  Ten whole freaking years!  I love the print and just could not decide how I wanted to use it.  Well the Sewcialists on the last Fabric Chat helped me with that.  There were several options thrown out there for what I could do, but a maxi skirt was the one that struck me.  I made a different version of my self drafted skirt from last summer.  This version has the long chiffon layer with a short black cotton layer underneath.  Both are attached to 3″ wide elastic with a zig-zag stitch.  I used my 3 yards pink and black print chiffon and 1 yard of black cotton, all from my stash.  I wore it last Monday, when the weather was amazing.  I got quite a few compliments on it, so I think I want to make one more maxi version with a polka dot chiffon I got back in January.

On a side note, I made it through Lent without buying fabric!  It has been just over a week since Easter and I still haven’t bought fabric.  I think I want to continue this fabric fast until my New Orleans trip in June.  I know I will be buying fabric as a souvenir while there.  The only piece of fabric I want is some black swimwear lining to go under a ITY print knit from the stash.  I drafted a high low dress and I really need a lining for the fabric but don’t have one.  So when Jo-Ann’s decides to get more in for my local store I will get it, because I know that print will be perfect for my new pattern.
