A year and a half ago, I got a pattern for a skirt. I finished it about a year ago, just after I moved to Corvallis. Then I put it in a box and left it there for... well, about a year. I kept seeing it and thinking "I should really put in the drawstring and WEAR the sucker I spent money and time on!"

So finally today I'm wearing it to work.





And there she is, in all her glory. The skirt isn't half bad either. I don't care much for the shirt though. Oh well.

The panels are because I'm not a 29" waist and I didn't know how to resize the pattern back then. (I'd do it differently now.)

Adorable! How long did it take you to make that?

It took me longer than it should have because I got distracted and stopped in the middle. But... a few weeks probably.

You do great work. You should sell your stuff in Corvallis and Portland. I am sure a lot of shops would love to work something out with you.

I would love that. I thought about getting a booth at the Fall Festival, but I think you have to book them in advance. I'll have to go look around and see what places might want to do consignment or whatever.

Seriously, make your few items that you want to sell and take them around and see who would be interested. You also have great pictures of stuff that you have made in the past, so take your portfolio as well. A booth would be awesome too--you might still have time for the Fall Festival. Good luck!

I wonder how much booths cost at Fall Fest. I looked into it awhile ago but I can't remember.

I might wait until fall anyway, or summer at least, 'cause most of my stuff is cold-weather stuff.

I really like it! And for that matter, I rather like it in combination with the shirt too.

I don't mind the colors together, but this shirt is too short. :D
