St. Petersburg, ...
I found this great material that I thought would make a great skirt, then I saw the Linda pattern, which didn’t look too hard. It’s not perfect by any means, but I can wear it, and the mistakes are not apparent unless someone gets closer than they need to be! I didn’t understand all the directions, particularly the waistband part, but I am very new at this. I didn’t realize that I needed to iron out the invisible zipper either, but it zips and the color doesn’t stand out too badly. I also got lazy and machine stitched the hem, but I think it looks all right. I did shorten it a little bit, but I really like the pattern. It makes a great dancing skirt!
bright cotton blend, invisible zipper, one button, contrasting cotton for lining
my friend Deanna gave me the idea for the contrasting lining, and I really like it
my husband was quite patient as I turned our living room into a sewing room off and on for a few days
How to Sew a Button Hole by Fernfiddlehead was great!
