Seven outfits in seven days. Butterick skirt 3460 and Collette Sorbetto. I made seven skirts and , since the waist was a simple casing with elastic, I put little heart tags in the back. I also made love tags for the shirts, with sayings from Corinthians 13:4-7, but only the positive ones. It was important to me to state what love is, not what love isn’t. The skirt pattern had quite a few adjustments and variations, and so did the Sorbetto.
Here are the quotes for the tags, note that I haven’t made the blue, indigo, or violet Sorbettos yet. I do have the fabric and a plan for the variations.
Saturday: I attended a belly dancing workshop. This was a perfect outfit to fit over my tank and leggings.
Sunday: I went to the park for a stroll and then to dinner with my friend Todd (or as he likes to tell people, “Patti’s gay husband”).
Monday: A school day, and the perfect fabric for an elementary math specialist.
Tuesday: Another school day. And the perfect combination to stand out during before- and after- school meetings.
Wednesday: Another school day. Bugs.
Thursday: My favorite, sugar skulls. School again, and dinner with friends after.
Friday: School. This outfit was inspired by a baby quilt my sister and I made. There were red squares and a polka dot binding. Same fabric, I went and bought more for my outfit.
I love a good challenge, and I loved this one. I did look longingly at some of my dresses a few times, but I managed to wear the same outfit without complaining very much. I will do it again, if this is offered next year. Dresses next time! I’m already previewing patterns.
