|Founders' Day 2017 in McCall's M7197|
Skirt: Made by Me - Shirt: Wal-Mart - Shoes: Shoe Time, Similar
Let me start by saying I really enjoyed all the Founders' Day festivities I participated in this year. To all my beautiful sorors, Pinkie Up!
Now, on to the real reason for this post, this skirt. This skirt is very special to me, not because I wore it for Founders' Day. It's special because this is the skirt I made to wear to my grandmother's funeral. She passed away November 2016 at the age of 93. She was a beautiful woman inside and out.
I remember being a little girl sewing doll clothes for my baby on her sewing machine. I remember the beautiful quilts she made. We talked a lot about her sewing experiences after she found out I started sewing. Those were great conversations. We talked about whatever was on our minds. I love and miss those conversations so much.
This skirt is made from fabric she gave me before she passed. She said she never really knew what to make with it. I knew immediately after she padded that I would wear something made of this fabric to her funeral. I'm not sure what kind of fabric it is, but it is absolutely gorgeous. The fabric has a little texture, embroidery with metallic thread, sequins, and paint. I'd never seen anything like it before. I just love it.
Such a beautiful fabric needed to shine so I chose a very simple skirt. Circle skirts are simple and fun. It was a perfect choice for this fabric. I think it turned out very well at least I think it did. Check out my review.
Here's a little food for thought:
Your family is a gift. Love it! Cherish it! It can never be replaced.
Until next time, smooches!
