New Clothes!

There comes a time in every woman's life when she starts hating all the clothes she owns. I hit this point a couple of weeks ago, and a giant shopping bag to Goodwill later, I now want more clothes! Being my crafty (and cheap) self, I'm not going to BUY new clothes, of course. I've had this fabric for a few years ($1 a yard at Wal-mart), and it was destined to become a skirt. In fact, it was sitting on the table, under the pattern, when I realized it was um, see-through. I found a pattern that featured a nifty doubled-bodice section that turned out to be perfect! I replaced the zipper in the back with some buttons, and added a ribbon to eliminate a rather scandalous gap in the front.

Also, you probably have noticed the change in my blog template - the change is still in progress, so if anyone knows how to get the banner to actually fit the area its supposed to, then let me know!
