The Birthday Skirt

So I actually finished the skirt! It's just a simple A-line, ankle-length skirt made from a light-weight cotton, and it has a drawstring waist. I made my own pattern based on instructions from Sew What! Skirts.


C., K., and I all wore the skirts that we made together for our joint birthday party this past weekend. But I still have a few adjustments to make. I need to take in the sides (I padded my measurements a little too generously) and redo the hem, which is completely uneven and messy.

Next up: I think I'll try making an apron.

I didn't realize you were suddenly back to posting. But I must say that is a beautiful skirt. I'm glad I picked out that fabric...I mean you chose a really nice pattern...
