I am off work for a week starting Wednesday and I have set myself a challenge to make one skirt a day, yeah you heard, one skirt a day. I will be photographed on the next day weather permitting and put here for you to see, and will be going on Etsy for sale, or I might just decide to keep it, which is what normally happens. The good thing is that you can have it custom made for you if you like it. If you can think of a particular style you would like to see let me know, I will not promise to make it, because it may depend on the fabric I have and the time. I can't believe I am doing this but here goes.
