Sewing projects from staycation

Here is the completed top-McCall's-on hanger.
Both fabrics were from EOS.  I was going to use orange as the contrast fabric but I did not like the feel of the orange knit with this knit.  Too much difference in weight to suit me.  Unfortunately there is more green in this fabric only I seemed to have cut out more of the orange printed portions of the fabric.  Photos wearing to be posted later.

Here is my current project using fabric from Fabric Mart-the floral cotton lace fabric and lining from EOS.

Skirt side showing pinned to lining
This is the skirt pattern I am using
The model is wearing eyelet lace over lining.  Mine will be similar except that I am using the view in pale green where the lining will be somewhat shorter than the skirt.

Back to work tomorrow, time off was nice and accomplished several things on my list to do.

One more photo--this is a new addition to my sewing room.  I have wanted this for sometime and JoAnn's had it for 1/2 price during the holiday weekend.  I assembled it myself and rather proud of that.  Not that difficult but lots of screws, washers and frames and drawer knobs.

    1. Now if I had a bigger room, I could do a little more organizing.

  3. Look at all those projects! Far more than I did during my recent staycation ;) Wish I would've thought of adding some more colourful organizational space though -- love that.

  4. Thanks! I wish I could have finished the skirt before heading back to work today. I should finish it this weekend and then need a top to wear with it.

  5. What a happy top! What a perfect subtle skirt...you had some great success thinking and sewing! Nothing like a new set of drawers to make life easier and in rainbow colors!!! We are all jealous!
