So… its been awhile. Much longer than I’d like to go between posts, but life happened. We got super busy and took 3 trips in the last month. One of those trips being to the beautiful St. John of the US Virgin Islands. I wanted some new tropical outfits to wear on the islands but with all the money we spent on our recent traveling, I didn’t want to break the bank. I have some experience sewing but I wouldn’t call myself an “experienced sewer.” Could I possibly make my own maxi skirts? Sure I sewed our drop cloth curtains… but sew something that I could actually wear (that looks halfway decent)? I was a little intimidated at first but I had the ideas stuck in my head and decided to give it a shot. I’m glad I did!
