the pengin and the bobby-soxer

As you can see, though I haven't listed a garment in a while, I have in fact been making them. This skirt will soon be a custom-sized listing in my Etsy shop (because the Sailing to Heaven blouse was a roaring success). But it'll have to wait until I replace my sewing machine (hopefully next week) because gathering the ruffle on this prototype skirt cost me six machine needles.
Anyhow, I love the way the skirt turned out, it's kicky and fun, and very reminiscent of bobby-soxers. I wore it to the zoo today so we could look at some penguins. Peeeeeenguiiiiiiins.
They were awfully cute.
