Skirting the Issue with Simple Simon and Co.




Hi Friends!  I have to tell you about some great friends of ours whom we affectionately call "The Lizzes." Elizabeth and liZ, that's their names, blog at Simple Simon & Co. (among other places) and have the biggest hearts of anyone I know...and the funnest personalities! 

Every July these beautiful women rally the best sewist in the blog-osphere to help spread the word about a fabulous cause called "Skirting the Issue." This is an event where we can all give back to our communities in a special way: by making and donating handmade skirt to girls in Foster Care.  Not only does it provide these young girls with some cute skirts, but it let's them know they are loved and not forgotten.



Because I am passionate about this Skirting the Issue event, I have created a simple skirt tutorial which I am sharing at Simple Simon and Co. today.  



This tutorial really is quite easy and can be completed in less than an hour so you can easily make 2 or 3 in a weekend sewing session.  

You can read all the details about Skirting the Issue at Simple Simon and Co.  

While you're there say "HI" to my friends "The Lizzes"and check out their insanely gifted sewing abilities...and photography!
