i made a skirt!
This was very easy to cut and sew up (it's Simplicity 7655). What attracted me to this pattern is that it is cut on the bias (so if done in stripes or plaid, it would come together in a chevron down the front seam. I'd love to do one like that). I cut this last week and sewed it up on Saturday. I know I always say this, but I love a quick project. This fabric is very thin, so I have to wear a slip with it. Also, I'd cut a size larger next time. Basically, though, I think this is successful, and very close to the summery look I was going for. (Because the home sewn clothes never turn out exactly as we had hoped, do they??)
