Michelle, Ma Belle

So my two sewing weekends are over for this time, now it’s two weekends away, and then no plans again, so maybe even more then.

The first garment to be finished, I rushed it on Saturday so I could wear it downtown when shopping (sewing supplies among other things). The Michelle skirt.

I really liked the fabric, it felt very springlike and the texture made for the perfect silhouette for this skirt. However, despite fitting, it turned out a bit big in the waist, so I think I’ll take it in a bit the next time I bring out my machine, the point of making your own clothes is to get clothes that fit you. Which made it more annoying since I thought it fit when I tried it on before putting on the interfacing. Ah, well, it’s not a major procedure, it’s just annoying, especially since I know I only have myself to blame.
