KCWC - Day Two

For the first time I can recall, I really wanted one of my dad's wooden trouser hangers, the kind that have two pieces of wood that press together to hold a pair of pants. And I'm officially jealous of anyone who has interesting textured walls or closet doors.

Photographic difficulties aside, here's the first completed project for KCWC: a "salad bowl" skirt. I love the row of radishes on the front:

... and these peas on the back:

The skirt is loosely based on McCall's 5841 and the rainbow skirt I designed for Caitlyn in December.

The vegetable theme had me a little worried, as Caitlyn is selective about her vegetables - eggplant is straight out, pepper and onions ok in some preparations. However, bright colors win out and the skirt was deemed a hit this morning. Hooray!
