Who Knew I could Sew a Skirt???

2012 is off to a good start – I finished my first sewn skirt this morning! I MAY have started it on New Years Eve but in my defense, I felt too sick to go out and celebrate with others. My husband and I had a nice meal at home, on our deck instead, complete with a candle and glass of bubbly. Anyway, here’s the process I went through.

Learning to use patterns – McCall’s 3341 Skirt Pattern
(note missing interfacing here, hmm…)

Learning to make darts
Learning hand basting

The finished product
(yes, I discovered the interfacing was missing and cut appropriately)

How it looks on and precursor photos to that healthy eating resolution

Hope you enjoyed the images, as much as I enjoyed making it. I now have a new work skirt! Now to conquer the next challenge – a dress or shirt???
