turkey skirt?

So, I worked hard to get this skirt finished for today.  However, changed my mind about wearing it.  A little clingy for a day of eating, if you know what I mean.  So, it will reside on my dress form for the day.  
I'll be back soon to let you know all about this project.
Have a wonderful day!

I totally understand about the "clingy." Today is all about comfort, bounty in all things good & happiness! The skirt IS gorgeous and I hope you'll wear it and post a picture or two?

A happy, happy day of family, friends, PEACE & love to you & yours! Thanks for your talents, kindness & creativity.

The skirt looks lovely...but yeah, Thanksgiving and knit skirts aren't a great combination.

Went to look at the pattern and can't believe they size it up to a 40+ inch waist!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Adrienne said...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Words can't describe how much I LOVE THIS SKIRT!!!!!

KeanaLee said...

Just got done making your recipes. Happy Thanksgiving. I love the skirt. A black bodysuit, long-sleeve. turtleneck or boat neck would look great! -----Cache' circa 1995

Jenna said...

Love It!!
Happy Thanksgiving!!

nicole said...

How chic! I'm sure it will look great on you, turkey or not.

Wishing you and your family a lovely thanksgiving!

Denise said...

I had a feeling you were going to say that.... but it does look great! Wear something comfy and you can model the skirt for us next week ;) (once all the turkey's gone!)
Have a happy thanksgiving

Beautiful skirt! Happy Thanksgiving!

Ann said...

Have a great Thanksgiving! I would have figured the knit skirt for a winner with lots of give for this day. It is beautiful.

kristin said...

really...just too cute for words. happy thanksgiving!

Lin said...

Lovely green skirt but sensible not to wear it! Have a great day.

Elizabeth said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Leslie.

The skirt looks amazing! and I am stunned (but not surprised) that you managed to finish it so quickly.

When it comes to holiday eating though I'm with you about comfort and stretch. I may bring my maternity pants back out of retirement for the month of December. Nothing says festive like an elasticized waist.

Margie said...

The important thing is you met your goal - you said Turkey day and here it is:) It will be gorgeous whenever you wear it! Enjoy the day!

--Deb said...

The skirt looks beautiful--you should be proud! But, I agree, it's not the right skirt for Turkey Day.

Virtuous said...

LURVE the skirt!! And you did right, we all should be wearing sweatpants today! LOL

Renna said...

raining sheep said...

I definitely understand the clingy thing when eating a lot of turkey. However, the skirt is divine and I do hope you model at some point after the turkey has settled :)

Full of Heart said...

Wow! It looks so great! I want to see it ON!

Louise said...

Gorgeous!! And it is going to look sensational on you. Perfect colour too. Happy Thanksgiving Leslie!

t does wool said...

hope your Thanksgiving was a good one...the knitting is beautiful,the skirt...hmmmm..I agree with you.

MadMad said...

No way! (But I totally get it - one needs one's stretchy pants some days.) I love your dress form's complete outfit. Maybe you can duplicate it for the next PTO meeting?

KnitFloozy said...

That skirt is oh so cute!!!

Jan said...

The skirt looks great! Would love to tackle that one for myself.

Jessica said...

That skirt is beautiful! I understand the cling factor...I almost wore sweat pants to dinner!

lucky knitter said...

It is really beautiful. I love the cables. It would look so cute with tights and boots on a girl's night out!

Sheila said...

OmGoodness that skirt is to die for.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving.

Hadley Gets Crafty said...

Beautiful, nonetheless. Will you show us how fabulous it looks whilst a human is wearing it? I bet it's super amazing.

I never know what to wear with knit skirts. In the summer it's easier: tanks, etc. But winter makes things a little trickier. It seems weird to wear a sweater with a knitted skirt, for instance.

Oh, knit fashion guru. Give us the benefit of your wisdom!

Yarn It said...

I am loving the skirt. I am looking forward to seeing it model - you convince me to cast on for it!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Molly said...

Adorable skirt!! Love the color. Hope you had a fantastic holiday and now onwards to Christmas :)

Hilary said...

Can't wait to hear all about this skirt -- it is fabulous!

Hurrayic said...

Great skirt - wonderful color. It would, however, not look good on my figure...I think I've been eating too many cookies recently. (love the last batch you made - they looked yummy).

tiennie said...

I think this is so lovely! I'm sorry that it doesn't feel right. I hope your thanksgiving was wonderful!

Seanna Lea said...

The skirt looks excellent! I keep joking about eating pants for Thanksgiving, but I totally understand about not wanting to wear anything clingy (besides, I would not want to spill cranberry sauce on the skirt either)!

Cathy said...

So true!! I wore my comfy pants on Thanksgiving--why ruin the day feeling uncomfortable? The skirt turned out great--love the color.

Lynette said...

i completely understand. happy belated thankgiving. it looks wonderful on the form and i'm sure it looks great on you.
