What's that, I can't hear you? It's snowing? In Maine? Today? No, no, you must be mistaken. Surely you are mistaken. Because, you see, I just made the first two of my installments in the Summer Skirt collection. That's right. Summer skirts - the ones meant for flip-flops, sand in the toes, and days spent at the beach. That's the summer I'm talking about.
It's right around the corner, Summer. Which is why I needed to get moving on making these skirts. For the beach. Easy to make (Simplicity 7229), easy to wear, light, casual...intended for tossing on in the morning, wearing over my bathing suit all day and getting wet and sandy and dirty. There will be some ice cream, berry, or watermelon stains on both of these by July. July - it's very soon, you know - I just bought new sunblock, and the beach blanket is freshly washed and by the door. Sand toys? At the ready.
Oh yeah. And wait for it to finish SNOWING.
