Lately, I've been venturing to Hancock to buy fabric or ordering from fabric.com, but I had some orange cotton in my stash and decided that it was time to use it up! I thought that it was just perfect for Simplicity 2003.
This skirt was a blast to make. I lined it because my material was thin and I omitted the tie in the front. I prefer the way the softer, light weight material lays for this skirt. It will be perfect for our hot South Carolina summer weather.
This was my first time lining anything and it took me a long time to get the zipper right. I'm so pleased with the way that it turned out though. I used the glue stick set method and it looks really clean and neat.
I definitely plan to make this skirt again! Be sure to check the sizing... I generally wear a pattern size 6 in skirts and a 10 in this pattern fit me perfectly. I love the length of this skirt. I'm very tall and it's long enough to wear to work.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
