WIP Wednesday

1st of all can i get a Woo Hoo!!!! i am posting WIP Wednesday & its actually Wednesday. ha ha ha. i am doing this post on Monday night before i leave for California. if all goes according to plan it should post on Wednesday. we will see if i did it right.
this fabric caught my eye at a shop in Redmond, OR when we were on our Sisters trip. i love the color of it but i also love the dragon flies as well as the bugs and spiders on it. strange i know. anyways, i was thinking skirt when i saw the fabric.

so that is what i made. i love how it turned out. i will be wearing it on my trip with a black top & some new black shoes that i got. it will be interesting to see what if any comments i get on it.

the pattern is from Amy Butler its her Barcelona Skirts pattern. i made the A line one. i ended up cutting off about 4" to get it to the length i wanted. the skirt is lined and it went together fairly easy.

i have other fabric that i bought on that trip to make another skirt as well.

i hope you all are having a great week. i will get to go see Mickey tomorrow as our closing event is at Disneyland.
