I've been meaning to blog about the skirt I made in my beginners sewing class for some time now. I was waiting till I hand hemmed it. And I just managed to finish that last night. This morning I added a swirly embroidered thread in to break the color a bit. It's too Grey! And I won't lie to you, I did choose a cheapo fabric to start with. I didn't think a first skirt was going to turn out that good, but it did. In retrospect, now I wish I had invested a bit more in the fabric...Oh well!
Lot's of photos for details ( yes I am very proud, and no I won't be able to recreate a skirt like that again. I need to take that class again!)
I chose a red zipper 'cause a Grey zipper is... BORING!
The skirt is an A-line skirt copied from a pattern. It's nice and snug from the top. The cut would show better if I modeled it for you, but for obvious reasons, I couldn't do that! ( If you need more hints re-read my blog name...Annd, we're clear!)
