Fun spin shot:

        I have been dying to get my hands on a copy of Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing.  I had it on hold at the library for months.  It finally came in the the Sat before Mother's Day and I raced to the library to pick it up.  I really wanted to make the wrap skirt pattern.  I had seen a few versions of it on Flickr and thought it would be perfect for some poppy fabric (sale $3/yd!!) I had been hoarding for the perfect dress or skirt pattern.  So I traced the pattern, ironed and cut out my fabric, sewed and about 6 hours later (with interruptions) I had this skirt.  I stayed up till 3am to finish it and wear it the next day to church.  So worth it.

  If you decide to make this, check her website for corrections.  I am a size 10, used 5 panels and 3 yds of fabric.  (The original pattern has a sz L using only 3 panels.  That would have barely wrapped around me...)  I had to cut the waistband not on the bias because I didn't have enough fabric to do so.  I think the next one I make I might put a large button hole in the waist so that I can thread one of the ties through when wrapping.  I was unsure of the proper wrapping technique so a buttonhole would make that easier.  Plus that would help the waist lie flatter, not so much fabric bunched up.

I am in love with this book and I might use the Amazon gift certificate I received for my birthday to actually buy a copy.  Which is saying a lot for me.  I very rarely buy myself books.
Thanks for looking!
