The MiniChallenge is fun, so I decided I will do it, and I have a new skirt. I sew the skirt according to the pattern, then I widen the waistband. ( the total is about six inches ~ not including seam allowence ) The waistband is a little different, instead of using a rectangle, I draw a pattern. ( go to how to, I put the so-called pattern )The skirt was a little big for me,I also narrow it a little. For the thing that go over the shoulder, ( i don’t know what it calls) i put a button there, so It’s removeable. For the place that I put the belt, you could replace it with a long piece of fabric and tie a big bow on the side. ( I’m still finding some color that matches the skirt color ) On the bottom, I fold it in a few layers. I post this yesterday, but it didn’t work… hope it works this time
embroidery fabric (that’s what the sign says when i get it) 55% Linen, 45% Rayon
