I finished Jane’s skirt. All in all, it turned out pretty well.
I debated whether to use a solid or a print for the waist and hem. I was thinking solid orange because Jane likes pink and orange together. Fatty voted for a print. I think it was a good choice – thanks, hon. I would like to make an applique t-shirt to go with it. A butterfly, maybe. Any other ideas?
This skirt was very easy to make. It’s basically a bunch of rectangles. I did have a small problem, though. My math was off – I forgot to take seam allowances into account so the casing is very small. I didn’t have enough fabric to re-do it so I just bought some skinny elastic instead. Yes, there is elastic in there with the drawstring. A lady at the fabric store suggested it. I am glad I took her advice – it stays up better.
She tried it on and took it for a spin.
Around here, twirly skirts are favored. And this one passed the test.
