Then along came Sofie who said I had to! And in my mind I could hear Tany, Summerset and the rest of you saying "Just do it!!!" (I chose to mention Tany and Summerset as I know they do not sleep - or how else do they get so much done?). To cut a long story short I finished my new skirt at 11.30 and here it is..........
I do have one small confession - I haven't hand sewn the lining to the zip yet...but I can do that tonight watching CI. I have a grey Ojay jacket that I wore with the outfit to work today.
Did my hair really look like that all day today?
The skirt has an invisible zip in the back and I bagged the lining and eliminated facings. I understitched the lining down to the seam allowances. To ensure the waist does not stretch I sewed in cotton tape.
This was so easy and I am really happy with how it turned out. And yes the fabric came with the embroidery and the sequins. Who said accountants had to be boring?
And the wearablity factor for the Ottobre top? 10 out of 10!
