Lacey Days and A Winner

 ~ Hi Everyone ~
I hope you had a fabulous Easter weekend and are enjoying the coming of Spring! It's one of my favorite seasons. 
I am having a blast visiting with my children. It's such a treat when they come home in between college semesters. We have so much fun together - I LOVE MY FAMILY!
My daughter in law, Sheridan informed me that she had found a blog with a lovely lace skirt on it and that she would like to brush up on her sewing skills -WELL! First of all, she said two MAGIC WORDS and practically in the same sentence - BLOG and SEWING! Needless to say, we couldn't make it the fabric store fast enough! LOL!
Thanks to Leanne's Blog - Elle Apparel for sharing her fun Lacey Skirt tutorial. We tweaked the design a bit and went with only one seam with a zipper  in the back, a drop waist with darts, and a small back slit. YAY! It turned out just as we imagined it ! Sheridan even got to wear it for church on Easter Sunday!
