The skirt

Thanks to the tutorial at Fashion Incubator I was able to make the 3 welt pockets on my skirt. Actually, I made 4. Why? The pattern onlyt calls for 3. Well, when you make one one the wrong side of and you have two left fronts, you gotta do it again!!

Anyone read the instructions for this pattern? Confusing to say the least, that may be why it has a 2.5 dot rating. It looks like a wrap skirt but there is an invisible zipper. With the invisible zipper, you would think the buttonholes would be faux. No, BWOF has you make buttonholes. I tell you this is making my brain work on each step. I keep telling myself one step at a time. Hopefully, a bit more sewing tomorrow. We will see, hubby wants to paint some fence on the farm before the reception. Yes, that is 12 days away. It shouldn't take too long with 4 of us painting.


  1. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't be able to concentrate at all! The wedding would have all of my mind. Sometimes you just have to work through a pattern once to get the kinks out. Good luck!

  2. Yeah, this is a complicated pattern. Which is why I went the simple route and made it into the skirt I blogged about today. Who needs the headaches? But I'm sure it's going to be adorable on you.
