Everybody Loves a Parade
At the very last minute (like literally as my husband was walking out of the house and off to work), I suggested that we try to check out the victory parade for World Series Champion San Francisco Giants. The standard orange blouse I wear to all Giants games had been worn over the weekend and I had absolutely nothing to wear.
Last week I bought some the most perfect fabric for a Giants dress for about $.50. I never got to making a dress in time for the series and since I hadn’t planned on going to the parade, it sat unused on my sewing table — most likely until next season.
From the time I decided to go, it took about twenty minutes to make this skirt. Thankfully it was a strip of fabric that was already the right dimensions. All I needed to do was stitch up side seam and — because of lack of time — make an elastic waist band. The shirt was a store-bought tee from forever ago that escaped the purge.
