#1. High School Tennis Season (meaning many trips across the state on the big
#2. Too much catching up @ school...due to being away for....yup...High School
However...all that is behind me now...and I have until Spring Tennis Season to make stuff...and blog!!
So...I've whipped up (literally) a couple of new school-skirts. Both made of old sweaters....the bottom ribbing becomes the waist-band. Skirt #1 I hemmed and embelished with some ribbing rosettes, and a couple of leaves cut from some other old wool garment...and a few french knots. Skirt #2 was really a 1 minute effort! I didn't bother to hem the bottom, cause it's wool, it won't do anything except stretch. And I liked the wibbly-wobbly look. I cut vertical slits to put a ribbon-belt through the waist band...that took an additional 30 seconds! (Must be the camera angle that makes me look short and gnomish(large-headed) in these photos!)
