It’s going to be a jam packed, fun-busy summer weekend in Utah in just a couple of days. We’ve got the highly anticipated Craft Lake City 2013 DIY Festival, in it’s 5th year, in which I will be participating & pedaling my goods on Friday and Saturday. Then I’m off to Park City on Sunday for Park Silly Sunday Market AND to catch the final stage and finish of the Tour of Utah bike race… oh la la. So, if you’re anywhere near the vicinity of the beautiful Wasatch mountains- get out there and have some fun- do a little shopping, dine on delicious summer fare and oogle the boys in spandex riding past on bicycles at lightning speed.
A bit of a preview below- some skirts I’ve been making for the upcoming markets showcased in an evening of goofing around, trying-to-stay-on-task modeling with my daughters. A couple of lawn cotton zippered skirts, a color block soft cotton skirt in green, two wrap around skirts and vintage altered dress into a skirt. Check back in my Etsy shop after the weekend for skirt listings.
