I have been VERY busy the last two weeks, stocking my closet with enough skirts to get me through the "boot" phase...

I made M6608 in a lovely rusty red tencel I bought from Smuggler's Daughter

I made View C, shortened considerably, with a cut-on waist a la Louise Cutting.

I'm wearing it with a pretty ruffly linen blouse from Orvis

Then, because I have houseguests...here we are at brunch this morning...

and didn't want to change clothes so many times, I hung my recent acquisitions on the fence...

From the left, a linen plaid from who knows where  in Louise Cutting's 
"Relax a Little", a polka-dot knit, also from the stash, in Sewing Workshop's
"West End", then a RTW ombre sundress by Luna Luz.

Then, a reversible  georgette skirt from Orvis, a linen bias skirt from eBay, another Luna Luz skirt, and a black linen button-down skirt, also from Orvis.

I think that's enough for now!

My local sewing friend, Robyn, loaned me two dress patterns last week, and is trying to talk me into sewing a couple of dresses...

I start with a physical trainer tomorrow, who will provide me with some exercises not requiring a left foot...and see the doctor on Tuesday with the possibility of wearing running shoes with my new orthotics on a part-time
basis. Yay!

Check out Visible Monday, where the ever-gracious Patti provides us with an
opportunity to be VERY visible...
