It seems like every August I make a Macaron. Last year I followed the pattern exactly with indonesian batik and black cotton. This year I went a little outside my usual comfort zone with the colors and I strayed from the pattern! GASP!
I went ahead and cut out the bodice pieces in a size 2 while I contemplated what to do with the lower half. I knew I needed to change the skirt because the original was too snug in the hips. I thought about doing a gathered skirt or a circle skirt but part of me just wanted to cut a bigger size in the original and call it a day. I finished sewing the bodice and I decided to go with the circle skirt. Since I was using quilting cottons I didn’t have much width to work with so without widening the waistband that skirt was going to be SHORT!!!! It still feels short to me! But guess what it is perfect for…..
Twirling!I twirled myself dizzy during our photoshoot!
As you can see on the ground the leaves are beginning to fall which means…FALL is coming!!! Up next some fall sewing plans!
