How I wish I was in the faux Frontierland at Disneyland, instead I am out here in the real deal! Colorado certainly has reminders of its frontier days around; old mine shafts pepper the sides of mountains, little Victorian towns remain surrounded by modern buildings and subdivisions, and railroad tracks still carve through the plains. Though I may not be at Disneyland, I have had the ballad of Davy Crockett in my head all day for some odd reason!
This is my new brown cotton skirt, which will soon have a matching jacket. I added pleats in the back of my usual skirt pattern for this one, but I didn't get a good photo of the back! Something to remember for next time. I noticed right away how great this skirt would go with this peasant style blouse I have had in my closet for years. I am in love with peasant blouses right now, I only have two and I want more! I have heard they are easy to make, so I will have to find a good pattern and make a few myself. I would love to make one with a lot of multicolored embroidery as I haven't done an embroidery project in a long time.
I am hoping to finish the matching brown jacket this weekend, I am crossing my fingers everything works out as I sort of Frankensteined the pattern...we shall see!
