WIP Wednesday: Two Finishes

Two finishes this week. You heard me. Two. Finishes.
Skirt Sew-Along – I did it! I made a skirt! That I can totally wear! Like, in public! It has a zipper! That I put in! This is worthy of all seven exclamation points in this paragraph! I’ll have a full post on it as soon as I can get some decent pictures of me wearing it.
Pear Tree project – also done. Also awesome. Mark your calendar for March, because that’s when I’ll finally be able to show it to you.
I don’t know how far I’ll get on this one before Christmas, but I spent a little time today deciding which charms to use. I ended up with a combination of charms from AnneMarie‘s Spoonflower and Japanese swaps, plus some prints from my stash and Heather Ross scraps that Kelly was nice enough to swap with me.
I’m thinking of something along these lines for the accent prints in the feature blocks.

    Congratulations on your skirt! It is such a feeling of accomplishment when you make something you can wear! Wait til you are getting comments like..'did you really make that?!" There will be no stopping you now!

    Yay! Congrats on the skirt finish. Zippers aren't too bad in clothing are they? I think they might even be easier because you are dealing with a larger piece of fabric than a bag or pouch.
    I love your fabrics for the charmed qal. very fun!

    Congrats on the skirt, Lee! I have yet to make anything wearable that actually fits and looks good so I completely understand those exclamation points. Great fabric choices for the Charmed Prints QAL.

    I just found your blog and I'm really enjoying it so far. I just posted my first WIP. 🙂 That skirt looks cute! I had recently bought a dress pattern with the intention of trying to make a dress…some day I'll attempt it. lol

    Love your charms and fabric selections! There is just something about orange and some of the charms we all exchanged. Can't wait to see your progress!

    Your skirt looks great! I've only put in a zipper once and it was nervewracking, but it worked out well!

    Thanks for hosting WIP Wednesdays. I've linked up for the first time today. It's scary admitting to all my WIPs!

I love your list of tops to finish. I need to copy you and make myself a list. I love wip. Off to see the others. Thanks for the link.
    Enjoy your skirt.
