Pinch Me!

21 May

I finally made my skirt of the summer- a blue check circle skirt with a giant cooked and delicious lobster. Maybe I should have appliqued some butter on there too….mmmm……

I got a lot of compliments today, and a lot of weird looks. I am proud of both! I even had one woman ask me if I had a crinoline on “under there.” A little personal, but I obliged and said yes. She looked shocked and impressed that a young thing like me would be wearing practical undergarments. But really, a circle skirt needs a bit of poof underneath, otherwise how are you going to see the kitschy applique? (The reason I am holding out my skirt in the picture is because the wind was blowing like mad, and I wanted you to see the actual lobster, and not a red blur).

Again, this is the easiest skirt to make, ever. I posted it before, but here is a very helpful website: http://www.whatthecraft.com/tuts/circ.htm

Oh, and here is the template, for all those wanting to sew a big fat crustacean on something.
