I was a walking mannequin yesterday, wearing a complete outfit I made, minus the Chaco sandals.
The Barcelona Skirt by Amy Butler was my first attempt at solo sewing, essentially a test skirt using leftover fabric from a skirt my mother sewed for Sophie. This is one of three skirts included in this pattern; the other two will have to wait until I return from New Hampshire.
All told, it really wasn’t too bad; I managed to figure out the invisible zipper without ripping out any stitches. Agonizing about which size to cut was the worst part.
My measurements don’t fit neatly into any category, so I had to cut for the largest size and then take in the seams when it was finished. If I wiggle a little, I can make the waist drop down to my hips.
