Under The SeaPosted: May 20, 2013
My initial plan for this week’s SIA, inspired by the illustration in David Wiesner’s book Flotsam, was pretty simple: orange and blue, done. But then I remember that I have the perfect piece for this – my lobster skirt. Before Debbi and I moved home, we decided to make matching skirts (using the tutorial from What Would a Nerd Wear) and got this lobster fabric from JoAnn because it looked fun and Debbi comes from a lobstering town. But we procrastinated so much that Debbi went home, taking her sewing machine with her before we could actually make the skirts, so I asked a friend to finish them for us. We almost wore them while we went to Ha Long Bay last summer, but in the end decided that we needed to be a lot drunker to make matching lobster skirts work 😛
