Skirts!

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 7513 (c. 1997) Link to website or photo sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/patterns/sewingpatterns.pl?patternid=2589 What are you most proud of? That I figured out that if I lowered the front waist when cutting out the skirt, I didn't have to change the hem so much or have it sag because my waist is not on the same plane in front as in back. I fixed it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pick fabrics that you have shirts to match, and more than one per skirt. Goodwill's a great source. This is a simple, elastic waist pattern that relies on your fabric choice and personality for any style it may have. Look on this garment as a blank slate. Choose fabric to make it dressy or casual or anything in between.
