Sewing Simplicity 4236

Posts this week will be devoted to some of the things I missed discussing during my blog absence.

This skirt was the first garment I have made for myself. Mom went with me to select fabric and pattern over the Independence Day Holiday and we spent that evening and into the night sewing, laughing, and talking.

There were a lot of skills to learn in this pattern. Apparently the ad “made easy” doesn’t exactly mean easy enough for a beginner. There was a set-in zipper, a waistband, tape for the hem and serged seems.

In future I will keep track of the fabric amounts and notes on construction and pattern reading. All in all I love this skirt and already have another project lined up!
