Serger project 2


Here is another chop chop of the skirt. I thought i liked the green on the bottom but i didnt and it was too long.  My legs are super short, i look funny in small things…rolled hem again.  Its not difficult or very creative but looks super cute too me….this one may be a wee bitt short but good for the beach over the bathing suit because thats where i will be found, on the beach….the fabric is so soft and light.  I saved all the pieces to make a little something for my three year old.  But i must complete all vacation projects first…

this is my third try at this post.  So short and sweet It will be   I had this big dorky but comfystrtchy prana skirt from pregnancy 2.  I am back to my normal parts of me tiny size and it needed a choppin….so a few inches of the bottom a couple inches off the side. I serged the side seams, roll hemmed the bottom and i love it… Awesome.  I need beach wear, im headed there in a few weeks and from home i am staring at snow…no desire to shop just going to make everything with this new fantastic toy santa dropped off…sure do love him..

i didnt think to photograph this until after i ahd already cut..sorry but you get the idea…not so cute to cute..love love the rolled hem..


have a friend who has been spending the last few years utilizing materials from an old barn.  The barn belongs to his new family as he was married a few years ago as well.  He has been working with wood since his high school years and now he has taken his skills to a whole new level.  He is an inspiration to be around.   We all hope this is only the beginning of   *American Revolution Design*.  check him out at http://www.KEVINTRAVERSDESIGN.com.

He recently joined a studio trail around our community and asked me to design him some flyers. Here is the flyer and  Check out HOPARTS.org as well.
