i made: a knit skirt

I did it.
I made something with my sewing machine. Me!
I think that this is the start of a beautiful relationship between
mr. singer and me. of course, I had help along the way
telling me how to thread the machine, change the stitch, and,
even turn on the light.

in my {pitiful} defense, let it be known that
that light switch was TOTALLY hidden on the side
 of the machine.
okay, I promise I'm not completely challenged, 
but when I say that this was a first I really mean 
that this was a first.

I was so excited after making this beauty that I wore it two days in a row.
someone call the fashion police because I am violating all sorts of rules.
but, it can't be helped - I am in love with 2 yards of forest green interlock knit.

here are some places to find a similar, easy tutorial on 
how to make your own maxiskirt.

and, if the girl who didn't how to turn the sewing 
machine light can make one, you know that you can too.
