August Lovely Finish Goal

I usually set my Lovely Year of Finishes goals for the things I need to get done for other people. Many bee blocks or a tote bag for a great swap I was in. This month I decided I'd pick something to make for myself. And myself needs zebras.


Probably not a sari or jacket. Although having said that and seeing the photo again it makes me wonder if I need a new robe with zebras. Black and white. You wouldn't even see me in the mornings I'd be camouflaged in the tall grass.

Good thinking me. I actually want to make a skirt out of it. I need to hurry as well as I think this particular shade of fuchsia is great for summer. Or maybe the caramel zebras can take it into fall?
I just draped the fabric on Frida for the photo. I'm planning on making it more gathered then pleated. So far I have cut the fabric into two rectangles and one piece of waist banding. Zipper, no zipper, elastic... haven't decided yet. Wish me luck :) And as you can see, this pink is hard to photograph.
