Summer of No Pants 2014 - Post #5

Last week, I quilted during the day and worked on this dress at night.  I bought the awesome Ghastlies fabric at least 2 years ago, and I always figured I'd make this dress which is a Kay Whitt design!  It's a McCall's pattern #6123.  I am done with patterns from McCalls for awhile I think.  I ended up putting on some decorative buttons to cover up a mistake.  You can't see it in the picture.

Yesterday I dug out some scraps of fabric and made a skirt.  I didn't have too high of hopes.  I really just wanted to keep moving on my Summer of No Pants list.  I found some fabric that was gifted to me, and I pulled out my hemp/cotton/recycled poly muslin that I've been keeping around, and I drew out a pattern.  I knew that the muslin was VERY see through, so in my head I envisioned a skirt with the gifted fabric sort of laying on top of the muslin to cover my rear end.

My friends gift fabric to me now and again.  It's wonderful.  I have gotten sheets, tables linens, curtains, and new fabric.  A friend of mine gave me some knit fabric, already cut out, that she bought a long time ago.  She never got around to making the pattern, so she decided to give it to me.  I am not one to wear knit on the bottom half of my body, but I really wanted to make a skirt out of what she gave me.  Here is my new old skirt.
