Weekend Wrap Up

This morning was absolutely crazy at work!  I've been dying to blog all day, and am just getting a chance now (it's 2:30!!).  This weekend I was on call, so we didn't venture out too far.  It was a sales tax weekend in Massachusetts, and we did our fair share of shopping (at the liquor store, separate post to come). 
Sunday morning I sat down and started sewing.  I had bought this dark floral print a few weeks earlier and had planned to make a tank top with it.  After I got everything pinned out I realized that it was just impossible to see the markings, so I gave up. I bought some wide black elastic and decided to make a work out of it. 
I had to cut my face out.  Just too little sleep, not enough eye cream.
 I usually wear my newly sewn clothing to work on Mondays, but this skirt felt a little short.  I actually realized when looking at the tutorial again today, I didn't really construct it exactly right.  The way I sewed the skirt onto the elastic kinda cut the width of the elastic in half.  Lessons learned, I think I'm going to try again.  It was super easy, and if I would have sewed it straight through I think it would have only taken a half hour.

So, what do you think?  Do you like it?
