Summer Party & Skirt Challenge

Last night, we had a wonderful summer party at Cecilia's home. She has been our gracious host of our summer party for many years. The food was delicious as were the desserts. Too bad I didn't get photos of those - darn!

This year's challenge/theme was a skirt challenge. Many of us made skirts that we proudly displayed during the "Show & Tell" portion of the evening. Here are some photos.
These two were cutting up, as usual!

Mary won the skirt challenge with her beautifully detailed skirt!
She used Vogue 1291 for the skirt pattern, and added the yoke at the top from New Look 6345. And she added the buttons to sort-of control the origami pleats.

Rena's Alabama Chanin skirt

Sandie came with skirt-a-palooza, but I loved her Siamese cat top from fabric purchased at Sew Main St 

Rita's precious skirt!

Barbara's cute outfit, including a tee and fitted skirt with fly front zipper and pockets!

Ginny made an appearance with a fabulous outfit made from Louise Cutting's "Relax a Little" pattern and a batik she bought from Thai Silks. Great stuff!
Next month's meeting is back at the church and we'll be discussing Shibori with a presentation led by Martha. Desi will be ordering blank silk hankies for many to use. Please let her know by 7/31 if you'll need a silk hankie so we'll be sure to order enough.
