I made something, I made something! Woo hoo!! Seems like lately the sewing time has been sparse. I started this skirt about three weeks ago. Had everything put together, but then needed to hem it. Ran out of time before vacation, but that turned out to be a good thing. Took it with me and my mom helped mark the hemline (because God knows dh would have been worthless at that). When I got the chance, I worked on handstitching down the waistband facing because I can't figure out how I would do it on the machine without making it look like crap (it's that whole stitch in the ditch thing again). Well... that isn't quite done yet, but I did get the skirt hemmed last week, so it is wearable. And wear it I did! I chose two lightweight denims. The one with the bubbles I think is actually the wrong side. On the other side -- "right" side -- the bubbles are in color and look kind of goofy in my opinion. So I flipped it. It's a little snug in the waist because I still have some baby pudge to lose, but with fingers crossed that will come off in the near future. And then it'll be perfect. Wink

Very nice! I LOVE how it hangs and those shoes are too cute also!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Thanks, everybody! I just ran upstairs to check the pattern number; it is Butterick 5042. It's the same skirt in four different lengths. I chose the shortest one and I still had to cut about three inches off the bottom of it to get the hem to fall in the right place!

oh!!! i love it!!!! pair it with a red top and heels and  Shocked.

great job!!

Ooh, I'm liking the red heels idea!
