I wanted a pair of shoes, not just any shoes these shoes. But, I have this issue with spending all my money on crafting supplies. Instead I made a skirt:
It's the skirt from the Saturday Night Silk Jersey Set from Heather Ross' book Weekend Sewing. I adore that book... I used a lycra/cotton jersey fabric I had on hand and my most favorite supply of right now, fold over elastic!
I don't think I will make a casing again, well at least not for a skirt! Now, I just need to find someway to massage to budget to include those shoes!
