It's time for clean linen(skirt)!

After spending almost the entire 4th of July weekend away from sewing, I was itching to get back to it. I had spotted this beautiful "seagull" linen material and the ivory crochet trim at my favorite fabric store briefly on Saturday, and envisioned making a summer linen skirt on the spot.

I designed, cut, and sewed it last night. It took me a lot longer than I anticipated b/c of the nature of linen (kind of has a mind of its own : P), and of course, matching up the seams with the zipper seems to always take 2 tries, but I'm really happy with how it turned out, and now I have a linen skirt in my favorite color for my summer wardrobe! It's so light and airy, and super comfy.

I'm selling a garment for the first time through my JJ Design shop--custom orders, so please let me know your waist size and length of skirt you'd like, and please know that it'll take 4~6weeks. : ) While fabric supplies last.
