I'm kinda proud of this one. I'm new to sewing and this was the first time I had worked with satin. Also the first time lining a garment, inserting a zipper and making a waistband. I forgot to take a before picture, but it was a black satin pillowcase I stumbled across at goodwill for a couple of bucks Smiley (sorry for the grainy picture quality)

Good work, zippers can be tricky.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

That's the classiest looking pillow case skirt I've seen.  What a find, it looks like it was destined to be a skirt.  Very pretty.

Thanks everyone Smiley

Not busy. More like too busy to post my creations. I guess I get to sew one item a week. I've been sewing for a few months now. I really love it Smiley
