Do you have any idea how much it pleases me to have made something in silk that I actually like? And in a fabric that I've been saving for something special? Of course it helps that this is my TNT straight skirt pattern and I've made it quite a few times. Maybe this will turn the tide of silk wadders I've made over the years.
5466, which I bought, but then debated back and forth about it because it looked really tight in the waist on the model. Last month I made it in muslin and guess what? - really really tight in the waist! Bummer! But at least I hadn't wasted my fabric. Then I decided to use my TNT skirt pattern and pair it with the waistband from the Butterick pattern to get the look I wanted. Now why didn't I think to do that a few years back?!
fall/winter must haves list, this was the garment I had in mind for item #6, the statement skirt. But now after seeing statement skirts for several months, I think it needs to be an over-the-top fabric is a solid color that can be dressed up or down depending on your whim. So I'm not sure my version fits the bill. I still really like it, though.
This skirt has been completed for over two weeks but I never could find the time to get it photographed. I tried again on Sunday but would you believe there was a fingerprint on the lens and all the pictures came out blurry?! Justin was able to take these tonight which is one reason I really love daylight savings. There's also a dress that I've finished and hope to get pictures in in the next few days.
