I’d seen that on the fabric when I went to wash it and forgot about it. When I unpinned the pattern pieces from the skirt there it was, smack in the middle of the back.
It’s not horrible, and I probably could have gotten away with it, but as my first project I’d like it to be ‘right’ (why sew otherwise?) so I trucked down to P&S after work to get another yard of fabric. At $6 a yard, seems dumb not to fix it, right?
So, lesson learned. Additionally, had I placed the fabric differently I could have avoided this area entirely and not had to buy more fabric. Oh well. Nice to learn on a cheap piece of readily available fabric!
Meanwhile, I sewed up the rest of the base of the skirt. Apologies for the crappy in-the-mirror shot but you can get the idea. Not bad, right? It actually is skirt shaped – amazing how that happens. I also completed the interfacing, initial stitching of the waistband in class so I suspect this is going to be done before the end of term which means I get to start another project with Celeste by my side. What to do? Better get shopping!
