I´ve catched a heavy cold, I´m coughing (and it´s painful!) and sneezing all the time. As I can´t go out anyway I thought I could use this chance to catch up with my reports... This skirt was already finished a week ago:
fabric that matched my imagination for this model from the book, I finally decided to SEW instead of just looking at it.
I added a lining as well as a facing around waist and hemline, as I liked the "clean" look better, and the fabric surely would have "climbed up" my tights, and that´s really a thing I *hate*.
Is there anyone out there who can tell me why they NEVER use linings in japanese sewing books? That´s not only in this book but in almost all I own. No lining. Not in skirts, not in jackets, not in dresses. Weird...
On this skirt i´m very proud of the invisible zipper... almost perfect *gg*.
The skirt sits low on the hips and cries out for a belt (bad thing i don´t own any belts...)
here. On this picture you can see that the hemline stands out a little - I pretty much like the look, it´s so flattering...
Unfortunately none of the photos shows the nice pintucks, but you can see them on the instruction sheet, so just use your imagination.
Due to my heavy cold I just sew some smallish things at the moment, mostly christmas presents. Early bird, I am...
Hope you folks are well and had a wonderful weekend!
