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.
