After a bright and sunny week, it has turned positively chilly in these parts. I need to turn the heat back on. However, it is perfect for the completed Very Easy Vogue 9311. It really is very easy and makes a really nice skirt. Definitely an instant gratification skirt. I really need to shorten the pattern though, it was still about 2 1/2 inches longer than I would have liked.
You can see the little darts I put into the skirt to fix my stretching of the fabric.
The fabric is warm and goes nicely with my navy sweater which is definitely needed today.
I lined it….a quick look.
I ran into a problem hemming this skirt. I hemmed it a couple of days ago but I didn’t think about how think the fabric is. It was too thick for my basic turned over hem which is, of course, what I did. After it was done, I took a look and UGH it was horrible. So I ripped out the hem, applied hem lace to the bottom and did it all over again. Success!!!!
Now onto bigger and better things and hopefully the return of warmer weather.
