As promised, the straight skirt made to go with my new green top. This skirt pattern is a favorite because the fit is great and it's super easy to make up. I took out the back seam and put the invisible zipper on the left side.
The fabric is a stretch sateen bought from JoAnn's. I just loved the colors in it.
I sew bias tape along the facing edge and the side seams. I use sew the non zipper side seam as a french seam, but realized this would be hard to alter if I were to go up or down a size. I'm still working on loosing that 8 pounds I gained around Christmas of last year, so need to be able to take it in.
Up next is a skirt from February's Burda magazine, 107 B. I'm having a few issues with its unflattering wide pleats. Not sure why I loved this skirt in the magazine so much...
