In the Queue Wednesday

Now, don't ask me how I managed this, because I don't know. I think the stars must have been aligned or something - and I should have run out and bought a lottery ticket - but somehow I caught my husband in a weak moment and got him to agree to take some swing dancing lessons with me...

We've had 2 lessons so far and we are both really enjoying it! (And we haven't broken anything yet...) This coming Saturday, as part of our "homework", we are attending a dance hosted by the studio where we take lessons.

Well, I think everyone will agree with me that you can't go to your first official swing dance without a new circle skirt, right?

So, everything else in my queue has been pushed to the back burner while I put together this circle skirt (a link to the pattern is embedded in the photo).

It's a simple 2 piece pattern - a waistband and a quarter-circle skirt piece - of which you cut 4 in each of 2 fabrics.

Not only is this puppy in my queue, but she's half-way done. Keep your fingers crossed for us, that our lucky streak (of not breaking anything) continues this Saturday night! :)

What fun! I love a bit of dance-inspired clothing. One day I want to make myself one of those dresses with the rows and rows of fringing around them...perhaps if I took some cha-cha lessons I would be inspired to make the dress.

I swing dance lots :)
Circle skirts are great, but be careful of how much and how fast you twirl, or wear bloomers ;)
Hope you have fun and keep going, be sure to post pictures!
