Awash in a sea of Blues

This is proof that I have actually been doing some sewing! It has finally cooled down enough to where my sewing room doesn’t feel like a sauna.

I decided to make this skirt to try and get rid of some of the denim I had laying around. The benefit of being  a seamstress is that people will often give you their second hand clothing (think mens shirts and jeans galore). The down side to this is that I usually receive the “fabric” faster than I can make something with it. so, this skirt was a perfect way to get rid of 4 pairs of jeans in one fell swoop.
