I know. I know I need to do my snake dress. And finish cjane's dresses. But I had to make a skirt yesterday. There are times when I just stumble upon an awesome print that I've had in my fabric bins that I forgot I had, and then I can't stop myself making a skirt.
Skirts are great because they only take a day to make. Or six hours if you have a pre-made pattern. I love staying up all night when my husband is gone at work and make a skirt. Totally undistributed, playing Edith Piaf really loud with no one around telling me he doesn't like French music. Well I don't like you! No, I didn't mean that.
You see how distracting that can be?
Steve was around yesterday, so there was no Edith Piaf. There was however season one of Everwood that I got from Netflix. Does anyone else remember Everwood? Such a good show.
Anyway, here is the skirt. This was my first attempt at an exposed zipper, and I have to tell you it is GREAT sewing this. It is probably ten times easier than doing a normal zipper, and it is 100 times cooler. Don't you just love the print?
I'm going to be doing a ton of exposed zippers for my postpartum line. I am tres excited.
Concerning the how-tos, what do you want to know about sewing? I would rather do something that you can actually take something away from it. I know that a lot of you don't have personalized slopers lying around, so what do you want to know about sewing? What do you want to learn about to do at home?
