Knit Lace Skirt

"Jennifer! Pst! Jennifer!" someone was whispering behind me.  Naturally, I didn't think that this whisper was meant for me because my name is not Jennifer.  But I noticed in my peripheral vision that the person from whose mouth the whisper was coming from was motioning towards me.  

"Hey Jennifer!" I turned to find that a nice woman in my church congregation was indeed addressing me.  

Now here's the rub.  Do I correct her?  No.  She seemed so confident in thinking that I was Jennifer and I didn't have the heart to correct her.  And I couldn't blame her.  I get mistaken for "Jennifer" quite a bit.  I blame that on the fact that I bare an ever so slight resemblance to Jennifer Aniston.  Slight.  {Well, it's more like I could be taken as her homely cousin or something like that.}  And if I correct her and tell her "my name is Bethany" she might hear Brittany or Stephanie.  That's pretty common too.  I had a teacher call me Brittany for an entire semester and I think she still thinks that's my name.  But I digress.  

I simply chose not to correct her.

"Jennifer, I love your skirt!" she said.  

"Oh thank you!" I answered.

"Where can I get one?" she asked.

"Oh I made it.  You could totally make one too!"

"Oh no.  I couldn't make that."

I left it at that.  But had she known how easy this skirt was, she might have given it a try.  Jersey knit, stretchy lace, cut with a bit of a curve toward the top, sew down both sides, hem the top and bottom with a double needle and you're in business.
And I'll be honest with you here.  Making tutorials is stressful for me.  I like to document and take pictures of what I make and how I make things in hopes that it might be helpful to someone else, but sometimes it's just nice to create or sew without interruption until a project is all done.  But whenever I do that, I feel a bit lame that all I have to show you is an end product.  I'm sure it's not as helpful, but maybe you can look at posts like that as inspiration rather than an exact "step-by-step"?
I might even get around to making another one of these because it was such a breeze.  {And if I do, I'll make a tutorial} It was a nice, super satisfying, easy project just for me.   
Ok, remember how I'm not a model?  I know I talk about this every time I post a picture of myself, but seriously.  What am I looking at here?  Maybe a real cool bug?  And where I am walking?  Towards the bug, off the sidewalk?  Sheesh. 
Anyway, that's it.  Now please excuse Jennifer, Brittany, Stephanie Bethany while she goes to do some laundry.  Have a fab day!

  1. I know exactly how you feel with the whole name thing. Everyone calls me Anne. I just let them. Anne Romney. Haha. My OB called me Anne through my whole pregnancy. I corrected him at first, but then I just gave up. I love the skirt, by the way!
