I have been plugging away at some projects, but have neglected to post anything for some time- oops. I did get this skirt done at the beginning of summer. I fell in love with the fabric, $5/m clearance in the drapery section. I was thinking of making a dress, but thought the pattern may be a bit much for one, so opted for a skirt instead. Picked a simple A line skirt pattern I have and voila! Had a newer machine on loan for a few weeks and this was my first blind hem. What a timesaver!
Cotton drapery fabric, 7" zip, thread
