Remember a few weeks back, when I posted pictures of fabric and patterns and announced my big plan to do lots of sewing over spring break? Well those dreams have been realized! I present to you, my first skirt:
I snapped this photo right after finishing it. Please excuse my scarred up knees, as well as the machine-sewn hem. The pattern (McCall’s M3341, “quick and easy” pattern) told me to hand hem this, but it took me days to make and at this point I couldn’t be bothered. The print hides the stitches pretty well, so I don’t really care.
And here’s a shot of the way I actually wore it to teach last Monday:
I love it! I’m definitely going to make more skirts (whenever I have the time).
