I decided to take a wee break from sewing Autumn/Christmas season stock for Tawny Bee and make myself a skirt.
Made with the same pattern as the one posted below that I made at the beginning of summer.
This time I used a pretty sunflower yellow for the top tier. You may remember that I used the same fabric for Laney's yellow bonnet.
The middle tier is Wizard of Oz - Yellow Brick Road fabric. It features all the characters as they appear in the movie.
The bottom tier is a boring green canvas-ey type fabric that I don't really like but works awesome because it has a little weight to it. The skirt doesn't fly away as easily as my first prototype does.
It ties at the waist with a drawstring belt that I made out of the brick road fabric.
PS: I'm well aware that the photo taken from the beginning of summer has me 12 lbs lighter than I am today. Yeah... 12 lbs... :( I'll get into all that during Wednesday Weigh In. Stay tuned.
