Better late than never!
It took me three months to make my very first skirt...actually my very first piece of clothing. I wrote about that project on April 20th. At that time I was up to the challenge and ready to go! Crazy how things can change once you open a pattern and start reading the instructions. So the pattern and I developed an unhealthy relationship! I would promise to spend time with it during the weekend (to figure out my size, cut the pieces, etc.). Then the poor thing would get stood up and would stay on my craft shelf gathering dust! However, last week, don't ask me what happened but I started and almost finished the skirt in an afternoon. The only problem that I had was the button hole...I just couldn't figure it out with my sewing machine. Plan B: a discrete metal snap. Now, I'm ready for another sewing challenge. Any suggestions of easy patterns but without button hole? I'm just not ready ;)
note: I used McCall's 5430 (skirt C)
