Back to school skirt

School was starting and I needed another skirt. I had New Look 6843 cut out from last summer. The fabric was a shirting from JoAnn's. It looks white, but it a light/pale green. I made this pattern before two times. What I learned from the last two skirts, was to underline!!! Now, I must tell you that the underlining idea did come from me. Carolyn of Diary of a Sewing Fanatic has passed on her sewing wisdom, and underlining is one of them! Wow the underlining makes such a difference. The skirt does not wrinkle and if hangs beautifully.

Now the skirt does not look like much by its self, until you see it with the blouse.

The blouse was on the clearance rack at Dress Barn. I could not pass it by. It has ruffles down the front. My shoulders look great with the neck treatment.

See the ruffles!!

The back it very cute! It is a great little top for the summer!

What is on my cutting table now? Another NL skirt.
It is Sunday evening and I am getting ready for the week ahead. I am going to make a sewing plan for this week. I will write down at least one sewing task to complete each day.
What about you? Do you plan out your sewing for the week?
