I finished my first skirt during my son's afternoon nap. My late showing isn't due to over whelming laziness, at least this time. I lost the cord to my sewing machine. I tore my house apart at least 3 times, from top to bottom. I even looked in all the weird places, like between towels, and in the camping gear in my garage. All this to no avail. I was sure that the cord would have to be special ordered, take two to three weeks, yada yada yada. So, last Friday I finally gave up and called my local Bernia store and...for only $10 I could come and pick it up right now! They "keep a bunch on stock"! Who knew?
So, Saturday = cutting, marking, pinning, and zippers (my least favorite parts)
and Today =
The only change I made was to open up the top of the pleats a little so that the skirt rides more on my hips and less on my actual waist. That's the great thing about pleats; you need a little more room, just let out a pleat a little, you need a little less space, just take a pleat in a little. Oh, I love the custom fit.
