Wow... so I'm a terrible sister. I draped this skirt for my sis in January 2018, and haven't done anything since then (yes, over a year)! Sometimes I find myself with half-finished projects which I want to have done, more than I want to do them! Terrible.
However, as it's been a while since I posted, let me show you the in-progress pictures and explain what I did. Normally, I switch to present tense for the project diary, but this project was so long ago, and the way I did it is not how I would do it today, so I'll stick to past tense.
Let's talk about the properties of linen, since I've been sewing with it lately!
The song reminded me of me and a friend once rushing to get our canoe to shore ahead of a storm on the lake where we lived. Energetic fun, but with a real deadline.
And since I was wearing my new dress that day, I got some lovely pictures to share!

This will be a long post, mostly concerning the fire in 1911 and the pro-labor legislation that followed in America, but also touching on the global sweatshop problem today. Make some tea and join me for a talk.
