I’ve been wanting to sew a skirt of my own for the longest time. All the projects by Burdastyle members had me seeing green, and have pushed me to finally get my own skirt done. :D
I originally wanted to put in an invisible zipper but didn’t have time to go out to a craft store and get one, as I’ve been recovering from surgery (evident from the bandage on my left leg in the pic), so I just used a standard one in brick red (in pic #3). Unfortunately, I hadn’t thought it through, and only added the two ties at the very end, silly me!
The skirt ended up being really loose at the waist because I didn’t use the one inch seam allowance I added to the measurements.
Loads to improve on, but I’m pretty happy with the result, and now I’m confident enough to take on another project to wear for my cousin’s wedding. :)
