This is the skirt I made, a wrap around in a linen blend. When I went to Smithers on Tuesday I picked up the T-shirt hoping I had bought the right shade and fortunately I had. I whipped up a necklace and earrings to go with it, so now I have a nice casual outfit for Mexico although should it get warm enough I probably will wear it here.
Generally I have specific clothes for at home and some for going out and I always change back into my home clothes when I return from an outing. Also ,when I remember, I wear an apron in the kitchen so my clothes usually last a long time.
When I was in Smithers I went to a thrift store and found a skirt in the plus section which I cut down today and re-sewed to fit me so I now have a new to me skirt that cost $2, much cheaper than buying new fabric although I did go to the fabric store and bought some more stuff on sale although I haven’t quite decided what I am going to do with it. I don’t usually wear pink or blue but now my hair is starting to turn silver I decided to move away from my usual earthy tones.
