I did this for a few reasons:
1. We had a taste of nice weather to remind us New Englanders that spring is coming.
2. I wanted to sew something spring-y...fast.
3. I wanted to warm up before making my Pattern Pact choice for the month, the O+S Music Class Skirt.
4. These skirts are wicked cute and very easy to make.
On a side note I had labels made!
Now for the story part.
When I made the skirts I ran out of 3/4" elastic which is what my Pact pattern calls for. I went to the local fabric store last night and picked some up. Only to realize 5 minutes before the store closes that the clerk didn't put my elastic in the bag. So now tomorrow I'll have to head back there to pick it up.
I would've gone today but we had a big surprise for Nephew Bear.
Toy Story 3 on Ice!!!!
We had such a great time. He was so into his new toy that he wouldn't even look at the camera.
