I am a bit insane. It was Thursday afternoon and it dawned on me that on Saturday my kids were going to go to an Easter Egg Hunt and they did not have matching outfits! Oh the horror!!!
So since we had plans for Friday night, I had to quickly get busy that evening. Of course I still needed to finish work, go home, eat dinner, and take care of all the household needs too. But in my insanity I had an adrenaline rush and I was able to knock out two skirts and a pair of pants minus the hems and insertion of elastic. I went to bed at 11pm that night satisfied that I could finish the rest Saturday morning. Since this was a last minute project, I had to use what was available in my fabric stash. I had some lightweight corduroy that my mother had given me a few years back that was perfect. There were actually three coordinating fabrics: One bright green with large colorful lady bugs, one with stripes that matched the lady bug colors, and a light blue solid.
So there they were. Circle skirt remix and red polo on hangers. And I say, “Hey, J. Here is the ladybug skirt from Saturday and it matches the shirt too.” He replies, “You need to make another shirt then. You can’t have two bottoms and only one shirt.”
