>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.

    >Your skirt is gorgeous! I like that you haven’t lined it because, as you said, you can simply wear a different slip color to fit into your attire of the day.

    >It is sad that we can’t do what we are sometimes most talented at as well as love doing. Between the need for cheap imported products and the high cost of trying to have your own business (namely health insurance costs) it is a very hard thing indeed. I wish you the best of luck in your job search so that you find something you can live with and enjoy while providing what your family needs right now.
