What was your inspiration?
I wanted to have a skirt to wear when I am out on my road bike, but really didn't want to pay $80+ for one. Saw this pattern as part of the sewing with knits and thought it would be perfect. Now I just need to test it out on the road. I feels good to wear.
What are you most proud of?
That I actually made it!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Sewing with knits is not that hard, just do it! This went together so fast, even with basting.
I basted the waist band together before I connected it to the skirt, I think this helped a lot keeping things together. Then basted the skirt to the waist then finished it on my overlocker. The hem was a quick and easy overlock then turn up and zigzag, wasn't really sure I would like it but this really was a trial run so quick and easy was the aim. After I did it I thought it looked ok, I'll probably use this finish again (but match the thread a little better).
