turkey skirt?

Thursday, November 27, 2008

So, I worked hard to get this skirt finished for today.  However, changed my mind about wearing it.  A little clingy for a day of eating, if you know what I mean.  So, it will reside on my dress form for the day.  

I'll be back soon to let you know all about this project.
Have a wonderful day!

  3. The skirt looks lovely...but yeah, Thanksgiving and knit skirts aren't a great combination.

    Went to look at the pattern and can't believe they size it up to a 40+ inch waist!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. Just got done making your recipes. Happy Thanksgiving. I love the skirt. A black bodysuit, long-sleeve. turtleneck or boat neck would look great! -----Cache' circa 1995

  14. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Leslie.

    The skirt looks amazing! and I am stunned (but not surprised) that you managed to finish it so quickly.

    When it comes to holiday eating though I'm with you about comfort and stretch. I may bring my maternity pants back out of retirement for the month of December. Nothing says festive like an elasticized waist.

  26. No way! (But I totally get it - one needs one's stretchy pants some days.) I love your dress form's complete outfit. Maybe you can duplicate it for the next PTO meeting?

  32. Beautiful, nonetheless. Will you show us how fabulous it looks whilst a human is wearing it? I bet it's super amazing.

    I never know what to wear with knit skirts. In the summer it's easier: tanks, etc. But winter makes things a little trickier. It seems weird to wear a sweater with a knitted skirt, for instance.

    Oh, knit fashion guru. Give us the benefit of your wisdom!

  53. The skirt looks excellent! I keep joking about eating pants for Thanksgiving, but I totally understand about not wanting to wear anything clingy (besides, I would not want to spill cranberry sauce on the skirt either)!

    ReplyDelete
