Yes, It's true! Our land lord who luckily also happens to be our next door neighbor saw our line of air drying laundry and felt sorry for us! So he decided to order the dryer earlier than scheduled ( what a good man). The Dryer arrived about two days ago. But since we have been so behind on laundry we had to prioritize. So my sad and lonely new fabric sat two more days waiting. Until this afternoon...
I couldn't wait, as soon as our fantastic, super fast, new dryer, buzzed the end signal, I jumped...
The result, a new pseudo finished new Mei skirt with my new super cute Japanese fabric (bought for half price at a going out of business sale, woohoo!)
I used the lazy skirt free pattern found on the oliver + s blog. The pattern uses a ribbon to finish the hem but I didn't have a wide ribbon on hand. So instead I used lace I had bought also on super sale. I was pretty pleased with the final look.
The skirt is actually not completely finished, I still need to buy elastic. So to show the end result I just fed the waistband casing with a ribbon and pulled it through (hence the term pseudo finished). My sweet girl will have to wait to wear this skirt until her mama is not so lazy... Sorry sweet pea!
I have to go sleep now, it's 1:30 am and tomorrow ( technically today) is mother's day.
Happy mother's day everyone!
