Skirt ideas part 1

 It's that time of year folks- time to gear up for the Summer Of No Pants!   Please join us- all you have to do is sew 1-4 skirts or dresses, take a photo (preferably wearing it), and upload the photos onto the Google group! That is SO easy! 

Another note: Marigold is still looking for guest bloggers- even for non-sewing posts like accessorizing and looking cute in your new summer wardrobe!  So come and join us~ it would be so much fun to have you. (and I know that most of my friends are already sewing for summer!)
