I sewed the the skirt and pocket pieces together, attached the waist band, attached a regular zip (because I had one in my draw), folded waistband down and stitched in the ditch to attach the waistband facing. Finally I hemmed the skirt and that was it. A finished skirt in a few hours.
I'm starting to get more confident and willing to make up simple patterns with a mix of self-drafting and pattern hacking. It's lovely to have an idea and make it happen within a few hours. I love how it turned out. It's sweet but super comfy. It's probably not the most flattering look on me, but I'm loving it anyway. Thankfully the sun has come out this week so I've been able to wear it. It pairs really great with my Modified Colette Hawthorn blouse. I probably wont have many more chances before it's put away for next spring/summer. I can see myself making more of these skirt next spring.
Apologies for the indoor pics! Daylight savings is over and Tim isn't around much in day-light hours during the week. Hopefully during Autumn/Winter I'll still be able to mostly post OK quality outdoor pics. But, every now and then indoor shots will have to do.
