i finally got around to adding a pic (tho it's not a great one)....it's of the first skirt i made (which i added a giant ice cream cone applique to).....i kinda laughed when i saw the pic cuz there is this wierd white light in the pic by the bottom of the skirt which reminds me of those pics people claim to have of ghosts (maybe my ice cream skirt is haunted?)
sorry, i've completely lost my mind....this pic isn't even of the right skirt.....i'll try fixing it later
i just got a sewing machine a couple weeks ago and am learning to sew...i'm so proud of myself cuz i just made a skirt and it came out pretty dang cool and it was totally easy....it's a 6 gore skirt and i used this tutorial:
and i learned how to put in the zipper using this incredibly easy tutorial:
wish i had a camera so ya'll could see...
it took less than 3 hrs to make, including measuring and making the pattern and all the cutting of fabric...but i'm sure if i make another one i could do it in like an hour.....i'd probably alter the first pattern i made as well as i didn't measure good enough which made my skirt end up a bit too big....i'm totally excited about learning to make my own clothes as it's so difficult to find anything cute for chubby girls ...do designers assume that only grandmas are chubby? i swear anything that actually fits is totally in an old lady style....okay,rant over!
