AHHH HAHAHA! I made another skirt! I AM A MACHINE!! HAHA!! Actually, I can’t believe how much sewing I have recently accomplished. I’m not really the most efficient person. Well, all I can say is I have to get all my sewing in now, because August is looking mighty busy, and I probably won’t get much sewing accomplished. So here’s the skirt:
I bet you can’t guess where the pattern is from! Yes, yes, it’s another Machiko Kayaki pattern, but it’s from the Skirt a la Carte
book. Can you tell that it’s kind of a jean skirt style? I used an upholstery fabric that Carolyn
sent me. I wanted something stiff and heavy for this style of skirt, but it was a tad challenging when sewing the waistband.
Here’s the back:
For some reason, seeing Deedle’s little tail in the corner totally cracks me up. Her butt and my butt! Ha ha ha! Oh dear, I am losing it. Also, I apologize if my “athletic” (i.e., big, honkin’) calves are frightening you. They scare me, and they are attached to my body!
Oh, and a note about pattern tracing paper. I went to the fabric store today, and they had several different types. They were all in the notions section but not right near the interfacing. So, if you can’t find it, just ask, and hopefully you won’t get a cranky pants employee like I did when I asked for a tailor’s ham.
