Finished! Because of the lining, the bias layout and the ruffles, this design ate up 7 yards from my stash. I have now used about 27 yards for the year. Twenty-seven down and 773 yards to go! I'm heading to bed!
Vintage Threads is home to The Hundred Skirts Project, a service project to benefit The Shadow Of His Wing Orphanage in Guatemala. The goal is to sew 100 Skirts, each unique, each with a matching tee and each with a special embellishment of some sort (applique, beading, trim, ruffle, pocket, belt, piping, etc.) As I began to sew skirts and write about my project, interest in the online blogging and sewing community soared. Comments and email poured in asking to be included in the project. Of course I was thrilled and happy to have participation from others. It now appears that, thanks to the generousity of the online sewing community, we will exceed our goal. If you are interested in joining The Hundred Skirts Project, email me at email@example.com. Below you will find our count. The SKIRTS STILL TO ARRIVE are the skirts that have been promised, but not yet received. The Skirts Received Total are skirts that are now actually in my physical possession and ready for mailing.
SKIRTS STILL TO ARRIVE: Deadline Passed, Shipping Soon SKIRTS RECEIVED: 103 Skirts TOTAL PLEDGED: 114 Skirts
