InstructionsI used the pattern that comes with Diana's Sew Everything Workshop book.
Type of item: Clothing
Cotton sateen with 3% stretch
What was your inspiration?
Seeing all the women out there blogging about the great clothes they are making themselves--I really wanted to learn how to sew!
What are you most proud of?
Well, after successfully making the muslin, I measured the adjustments wrong and the first "real" garment ended up being a second muslin. So I am actually proud of myself for sticking with this project till the end--third time was the charm! I'm also happy I learned how to sew in an invisible zipper and slip stitch the whole waistband, hem and slit--I feel like that gave it a really professional looking result, so I'll definitely be wearing this skirt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Diana's class is great-- I was a true beginner, and if you are patient you will learn a ton with this project!
