This week I went a bit crazy drafting and ended up with a few new sleeve and skirt patterns, including both a circle skirt and 3/4 circle skirt. To test my new pattern, I tried the 3/4 circle skirt in this lovely thick hounds-tooth fabric that had been in my stash for years. I still think pencil skirts are more flattering on my shape, but twirling around with this much fabric is quite fun! I like the ladylike feeling of the larger swishing hem all day.
I met my mom downtown after she got out of class and we visited the Kirkland Museum. We had been once before, back in 2013 for my birthday, but it was great to visit again and marvel over the gorgeous decorative arts collection and Vance Kirkland paintings. I will be showing you guys some photos from inside the museum tomorrow!
