Jersey Skirt Experiment

I enjoy figuring out how things are put together and work as a whole. So, today I decided create a pattern for a swishy skirt that has a wide, fold over waist band. I chose a soft jersey material that drapes well.  After cutting out the pattern, the sewing was relatively fast, in part due to my  serger and cover stitch machines. Now,  I am looking forward to a warm spring day ....!

Leaves of Grass Collection | Totes and Shoulder Bags


"Leaf" 
10 h x 12 w x 4 d
Strap 29 l x ¾ w | 23 ins. hanging height | Reverses to Olive

Many thanks to FPM for the prompt to start sewing bags again. She requested another tote from me after dedicating her first one to carrying a marble sculpture to and from the studio. As an artist and poet in her own right/write, FPM also inspired my naming of this collection after Walt Whitman's, Leaves of Grass.

I playfully dive into my collection of cotton and canvas to create some new shoulder bags, totes, beach carry-all's and prom-inspired purses. Some are already available at the Etsy shop.
I hope you enjoy. 
Happy April, too.
