It should have been completed last weekend but when I went to get a zipper out of my stash on Sunday, I found that I didn't have one.
Off to Joanns I went but when I got back home I got a little busy making a chicken pot pie so that pretty much took up my evening.
Peeling veggies can sometimes be time consuming, but it was so worth it and everyone loved it.
I must tell you right now that I enjoyed making this skirt so much. The pattern is very well put together and I didn't have any problems at all.
Skirt number 2 is Burda Style 08/2012 # 112, I traced the pattern out Saturday night and was able to sew it up and install the zipper all in one night. I call this my ebony and ivory lace brocade skirt.
I got a call from Lisette a few weeks ago and during our conversation she proceeded to tell me that there was this brocade fabric she saw at Joanns and she just knew I would love it. In my head I was like "can't hear you, laa, laa, laa, laa, laa, not buying fabric, stash is too big, don't need anymore right now. Of course, when I went to Joanns for the last Vogue sale, for some reason I walked over to the brocades and checked them out.
I came home with a yard and a quarter of the fabric with a skirt in mind, and to call Lisette to give her piece of my mind. When I talked to her, she then mentioned that the fabric would be perfect for this Burda skirt, but I told her I didn't know if I had enough since the pattern call for a little more fabric.
