After my last skirt post’s crap photography, I really wanted to redeem myself with a better picture of the skirt ON. That said, this week’s sewing class involved inserting a waistband, fitting the skirt down to our bodies (cool!) and inserting a zipper. Having only gotten through part of the zipper installation, my skirt is currently in a very fitted and un-unzippable stage. Since this is a straight skirt, there’s no way I’m getting this sucker on until that zipper is available.
My ever-accommodating can-do boyfriend did not think these things should hold me back from that ‘skirt on’ picture, however.
Yes, folks. That’s my boy. Skirt fit right over his man-hips. I’m both pleased we got the shot (and amazed it’s in focus as I was doubled over laughing) and a little depressed LOL. Still kudos to him for eagerly taking one for the team so you could all see my progress.
And now, since I feel his man-body is a bit distracting, a few more pictures of the skirt inert, on the bed sans man-person.
Coming along. Even more skirt shaped than before. Need to turn under facing at top, finish zipper and hem. Then we’re done.
