In the Queue Wednesday

There's been a dramatic upheaval in my queue, and a relative newcomer has pushed its way to the top! Yes, this hip skirt pattern (purchased just last month at the Sewing & Quilt Expo) decided that it would NOT languish for months, politely waiting its turn, and forced me to go fabric shopping over the weekend.


(To be fair, it had a partner in crime - a Joann's gift certificate given to me by my friend for the alterations I did to her bridesmaid dress.)

I decided to make the two-layer, full-circle version of this skirt. (In fact, after browsing the bolts, I decided to make TWO two-layer, full-circle skirts, but I'll save one for next week!)

And so, without further adieu, here is the first set of fabric:
I'm going to make the outer layer in the primarily blue fabric with large flowers, and the under layer in the primarily brown fabric. I think it's going to be adorable!

Don't worry, you'll be seeing this soon! It's at the top of my queue! :)

Love the fabric. The colors are great. What is it? Cotton or Poly?
