I thought I might start to scratch my urge to sew more clothing by making myself a skirt. It is from a pattern that is roughly based on a skirt I got many moons ago at American Apparel. I made it from jersey with some lycra in it which meant i didn't even have to bother with an elastic waist ban. Does anyone see where this is going? Yup, you guessed it jersey with lycra in it stretches- really stretches. Which means by the time I made it to work I was holding up my skirt with one hand. A second pass on the sewing machine made things better and I think it may now be one of my favorite go to items. I promise to post more pictures of the shape and such soon. I am currently recovering from a yukky cold that has prevented any photo's, well frankly it has preventing anything that wasn't moaning on the couch.
