i always overestimate my sewing speed. both of these took SO LONG. the first skirt i had worked on on & off since sunday. the second one i had finished cutting at around 10 am this morning & i optimistically thought that i could have it finished by 12. FAIL. it was almost 8 o’ clock at night when i finished it. & i had only taken breaks to eat & neurotically check my e-mail while switching music. what! i was working unusually fast & concentrated too. see how much attention i pay to my clothes?
again, these look much more impressive on an actual person. they’re full circle skirts.
isn’t that rainbow plaid amazing? because of that fabric i wanted to keep this skirt on the simple side. it has an equally full red underskirt with a long row of gathered tulle at the bottom & red polka dot pockets! one on each side, with a bow & differently colored heart buttons. i wanted to give it pockets in the side seams, but only just remembered that when i had already serged both sides shut. this is a common occurrence. so many of my own skirts are pocketless for that same reason.
i want to keep this one for myself! it’s just so full of awesomeness. varied polka dots, floral, ruffles, lots of bows, the timeless combination of black & white… & with this one i did remember to add the pockets in the side seams! it has a sewn-in full circle underskirt as well.
but alas, it’s much too big for me. i made something in a large for once! it’s about 38 inches around the top. i’m working on diversifying the sizes. & you know, my designs in general.
i’d love to hear some opinions before i list these. & thanks for looking! :]
oh, & i probably won’t be able to finish a friday features today. sorry! tomorrow?
