>Hex Skirt

>

This is one of the items I made from those found hexes. I really like this skirt. I used antique buttons on the back of the skirt as the closure. On my other forums I have had a lot of comments on the lining of this skirt it actually isn’t a lining. There is no lining on the skirt that is just the slip I picked for the day. I don’t like to line skirts that way I have the option of color change. I wanted graphic patterns that day. If I want just soft color I would have picked a pale pink, white, or ecru slip.

I also made a shirt, and I have just enough hexes to make another shirt and skirt for the store. The second set is only half made at the moment.

I wore this today while job hunting. I think more people where interested in the skirt. It was funny how many people asked if I had made it, the fact that I made the skirt seemed to surprise most people. Then they asked for the whole story and got even more surprised. Sometimes I feel like a dying breed of a person. But in the same breath I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love making things; it is who I am, just too bad I haven’t been able to figure out a way to make a good living at it so I can stay at home with my kids and still craft and make money to help out my family.

On a side note for those who are on Ravelry, you can find me here.
