American country skirt

This is the second time I've used this pattern.

I call it my country American skirt, or vice versa, for obvious reasons.

Stars, stripes, blue/red/white, etc. I like the soft tones. They look country-ish to me. If it was very bright it would feel like part of a costume.

This is how I wore it today. The skirt is a little crinkled here because I've been sitting down most of the day.

I curled my hair today too. Or rather, I curled it last night. I used those twisty bendy roller things and left them in all night. It was quite fluffy this morning. It looked like this:

No makeup! Eeek. I've gone back to my old fringe too. I didn't like the side-part version.

More sewing coming soon!
