I am so close to being done with my dress. I have all 10 button holes done, and 10 buttons sewn on. I do need to re-sew a couple of misaligned buttons. But really all that’s left is the hemming! phew! I’ll be looking for volunteers for helping with that once I find some shoes to wear with it.
Any who, I can’t just think about one project at a time and when I saw this tutorial I wondered if I could resurrect the ugly skirt. As much as I love pockets, I think those are too much for me. In seam pockets would be handy without adding too much poof. Also, as I look around, it seems that poofier skirts need to hit more above the knee to avoid frumpness. Major inspiration found here. Also, your comments were helpful. 🙂 So to make this skirt, do I just cut rectangles of fabric according to my hip measurement plus ease? Or do I need to make it more of an a-line?
Also, there’s the problem of the lining…. does it need it? If it does, I could use very specific suggestions of an appropriate lining fabric I could find at Joann’s.
I didn’t read through Dana’s tutorial, but I think it really is as simple as cutting two rectangles. With that fullness, I’m thinking a rectangle will be more flattering than trapezoids (for an a-line skirt).
That’s what I’ll do then. It is easier anyway. :).
