It’s So Huge

What’s huge?  My finished project.  It’s the last one for my sewing class and the last one on the current list so of course it’s a good one.

DSCI0153

This has got to be the fullest skirt I have ever made.  Took quite a bit out of me to finish it.  You can imagine just how long it took to do the hem alone.  I’m fairly proud of this one.  I used a commercial pattern for this and it actually came out okay.  Usually commercial patterns don’t like me.  There are a few flaws, namely in the waistband and the size.  The skirt is a little too big for me, but only a little bit.  I didn’t get a picture of it, but I actually did okay with adding the zipper.  Unfortunately it’s a little too close to where I messed up on the waistband.  I’d rather not have photographic evidence of that.  Anyway it’s a decent skirt, and I have tons more of this print so there may be more like it in the future.  Possibly matching accessories too.Open-mouthed smile

Here’s the updated list:

  • Needle case
  • Mug cozy
  • Pants
  • Hair accessories
  • Brooches
  • Necklace
  • Other jewelry
  • Food
  • Top
  • Skirt

Ten down and out.  Decent timing too, I have finals next week to prepare for.  Sad smile

  1. It looks good and very pretty in that rose bud fabric. I have to confess that I hate doing zippers, for me they never seem to turn out right. :(
