Happy Holidays everyone! Sorry for the short absence, I’ve been taking a little time off for family, friends and finishing up some work. The farm is finally on winter break and I now have a whole month off of work to do all my sewing! I’m so excited to plan out my month, especially since there are a few projects I’ve put off in anticipation of this break.
I just have one project to share, a circle skirt made for my niece’s baptism! I have the honor of being Molly’s Godmother, and wanted to make something special for myself, since I made Molly’s dress. I had plans to make my whole outfit, including skirt and top, but didn’t have time to finish my top because of my craft shows.
I used the tutorial from Cotton + Curls for a DIY Midi Circle Skirt. I thought a midi skirt would be appropriate and sophisticated enough for a church ceremony but be fun enough to wear again afterwards. The whole plan behind this outfit was to be able to wear again for any holiday parties, and I was planning to wear it to New Years Eve, but it sounds like I’ll be sitting down all night, so jeans it is!
The skirt was very simple, the only major change I made was installing a visible zipper. The fabric is Rose Satin Jaquard Burgundy from fabric.com. I think the hardest decision when buying this fabric was which color to choose! It was a tight race between Burgundy, Plum and Hunter. Burgundy won out over Plum because it has a more “holiday” feel to it, and Hunter lost because I have a dream skirt that I want to make in green and I didn’t have time for making that skirt this time around.

The baptism went well and it was a beautiful day. Sorry I don’t have photos to share, but hopefully I’ll get some from other people soon.
In other news, my craft shows went great! I was so excited to be part of two holiday shows and could not be happier with their outcomes. My set-ups were smaller than the outdoor shows I’ve done so I changed a few of my displays.
Quick question: are you guys on facebook? I have a personal account but really don’t go on much, and I was thinking about starting a facebook page for Trish Stitched, since not everyone is on Instagram (my favorite form of social media). Would you guys follow? Do you have a page for me to follow? Let me know!
Have a safe and happy New Year!
