Maxi Skirt

Remember this awesome muumuu?

Image

After I turned the top half into an awesome dolman shirt, I still had the bottom part left over.

Image
So much pink fabulousness… so little time!

I put the skirt on my dress form and marked the fabric where it needed to be taken in

See that faint purple line on the left? It will soon be bye bye
Image
bye bye!

Sew it down using a great sewing machine. I used a Janome DC2013 πŸ™‚

Image

The bottom hem of the skirt was already finished, so all I had to do was hem the top raw edge to create a waist band

Image
It’s a cinch

I’ve never worn a Maxi skirt before… I’m trying to branch out of my comfort zone πŸ™‚

Image

I’m a little sad because this was our last day in Florida for our Anniversary trip! 😦

My camera still sucks a little bit… maybe Santa will be kind enough to bring me a new one (NOT Olympus!!!) πŸ˜‰

This skirt was quite comfortable. We went out to lunch (our last supper, if you will), and then ventured to a wicked awesome consignment shop we’d heard rave reviews about.

Image
Plato’s Closet… equally cool name.

Talk about awesome. Hubs and I were both able to score some “new” clothes for dirt cheap πŸ™‚

We had originally planned to drive back home the following day; however, as you can see in the pic, it was rainy 😦 Why waste a day in Florida when it’s raining? So, we headed home early… little did we know that would be a really wise decision on our part…
