I've discovered and started following some new blogs lately.
MADE has quickly become one of my new favorites.

Of course I had to try it!

Blogger Dana suggests dying the wide elastic for a fun contrast,

And as long as I'm dying elastic, how about a coordinating shirt too!
Yea, that's a double thumbs up from my Sidney. 
Thanks Sid, it's fun making things for you!
It's fun to twirl in your new circle skirt!
