Wool, silk, and leather

As you can see I havent been sewing much lately. I’ve gone back to work and there’s just not enough time to sew! I am not working full time just yet, and we extremely lucky to have awesome care for Kaylee during the day. But between work, sleep, cuddle time with Kaylee & hubby, its hard to squeeze much sewing time into my life! I really wonder how sew-less my life would be once the second baby comes along (in a few years). eeks! But I shouldnt complain too much, at least Kaylee is sleeping through the night most of the time!
I managed to sew this skirt up one day when Kaylee took some good naps. It is basically a quarter of a circle with a rectangle&elastic on top. The tan layer is wool trincotine, red layer is raw silk, brown layer is real leather from a thrifted skirt. I saw a similar skirt on a lady walking by and I really liked how it looked, so here’s my copy.

Well, there’s not much else to show for. I have two hand knitting projects going as that is much easier to pick up and do 3 minutes at a time. hope to be able to finish and show them soon!

  1. Wow, no wonder you wanted to copy the one you saw! It looks like one of those pieces that will fit with anything in your wardrobe.
    BTW, I remember after having my first child that I thought I would never have time to sew again. Strangely enough, I get more sewing done now that I have two kids and work full time. I guess mothers just become more and more efficient with our time as we go along 😉

  2. very whimsy, love…
    I second your feeling, no time to sew, got to spend time with baby. I don’t know how other bloggers do it. I started cutting the pattern pieces for Ginger skirt yesterday and I lose my mojo today to cut the fabric. And then there’s the tax return that I have to prepare and oh, I also to need to nap since I am doing mostly the night and graveyard shift…why can’t we have more help and more time on hands?
