I have been on a bit of a sewing kick of late. While I still have not taken the serger class and learned to use it, I do plan on doing that soon too. Instead, I have been sticking to the things I know how to do.
I purchased a pattern, McCall's M5430. It is a "one hour skirt". Now I am not the best of seamstresses so it was more like a two hour skirt for me, including cutting time. I am pretty happy with it. I screwed up the first one because I read the pattern wrong, however, the second and third one (which will be featured in a later post) came out okay.
Here is the first one:
You may note that there are two sets of buttons, that is because I screwed up the tie. A good seamstress would rip it out and fix it. I just added another set of buttons.
When I wear them I don't feel thin, but looking at the pictures I look thinner than I feel. They are really comfortable and a good length. I can get up and down with the kids and not worry about flashing my "assets" to the world.
