Spring & Summer Skirts

Skirts are ideal in the South Carolina summers. AND BONUS... They are great for teaching. I know I am going to get tired of dress pants. I've been seeing this full skirt circa 1950s and again in the 1970s trend... what do you think of the full skirt?

UPDATE: My darling husband Eric just read this post and said, "I think those skirts are so sexy. You would look so good in them. I mean, not to infer anything about the 1950's housewife but, they are beautiful".

MUST SHOP NOW! Is anything open?

I want to be a quilter.

These are gorgeous, can someone really teach me how to quilt. I mean, I know how to sew but the binding and the getting it perfectly square and not bunchy... I need help with those parts.
