So far this summer we've experienced a week or two of "normal" summer temps followed by days of unseasonably cooler temps. Cool enough that I've been unmotivated to finish the summer garments I had planned for the season.
That's why, when the sun shone and the temperature rose today into the mid 70s (F), I quickly finished this summer skirt. Who knows? I may yet have a chance to wear it this summer.
This was sewn from one of my favorite skirt patterns---McCall's 5431. My previous versions - here and here - no longer fit (too big - yea!) so they were donated and have (hopefully) found new owners who are enjoying them as much as I did.
The fabric for this one came from Crafty Planet as I'm lucky enough to live close enough to shop there.
The fabric was originally destined to become a tote, but I realized it's pretty rare that I actually use any totes that I make, so a skirt it became.
I'm loving the bold gold and white flowers against the black background.
Now if the temperatures will only cooperate for the remaining months of summer...
