Tweed a-line skirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My hem!!! It drove me crazy and I tried it three different ways. I was working with very thick fabric, a slippery underlining, and frayed edges from both. I eventually ended up with using hem lace, which I should have done from the beginning. Oh, and matching my plaid.... What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use fabrics you know how to work with! No, not really...it would good for me to step out of my comfort zone of cotton and try something new. I'm proud of the fact that I figured it out on my own. This is my best finished product inside and out. Read more at: http://augustmorning.blogspot.com/2013/09/super-online-sewing-community-entry.html

Beautifully made
StarCityLady answered:
Thank you, Anne! It was a bear to work with such thick fabric since it was new to me.
OriginalRed asked:
What a great job you did on the matching and the hem. It looks beautiful and it's a great length on you. I hope you win a prize!
StarCityLady answered:
Thank you! I doubt I win anything but a girl can dream, right? There is some stiff competition out there :)
