Boogie on Distractable Reggae Woman

I have been fabric huntin' at my favorite thrift shops....and I know I said I was going to invest in sustainable fibers, but I freakin love using vintage bed linens. You can't find funky prints like that at the store, and the fact that the materials are being re-purposed is a sa-weet bonus.

With all of the being said I can't seem to narrow my focus. I feel like i have to many ideas floating around that I can't seem to grasp a single one. I pull fabrics and coordinate colors and end with a bunch of different piles of fabric......I feel SO cat like when I do this. It's as if my next move should be to roll around and nap upon my fabric bounty. Meow!

Somehow I did manage to stitch up on skirt for my etsy shop. It is made of completely upcycled and vintage materials.....well all except the new high quality threads. This will be listed in the shop as soon as I get better pictures..... ;)

Last night I made some serious progress on a custom order for a friend here in Huntsville who is moving away soon. I am terrible with deadlines, so for once I am trying to get ahead......
It is inspired from a past piece I sold on etsy.....I call this design of skirt and apron "Diagonal Delight"
Here is what I have finished so far for Ashton......This "Diagonal Delight" will be in a lemon- lime flavor.
That's all for now friends, check my shop later this week for the Jungle Theme Skirt.............I see many more skirts in my future. ;)
