Here are some pictures of the sailor skirt from last week–sorry, no action shots; the sun is so far north that the bedroom (where the full-length mirror is) doesn’t get any morning light.
It was hard enough to figure out how to assemble this, let alone make a lining for it, so I got all fancy on the seam finishes again. This front panel unbuttons to reveal a zipper and a pocket:
So the inside had a lot of seams to bind:
Ditto for the (flattering!) curvy panels on the back:
(Obviously, I was getting bored working with plain navy so I had to add some color somewhere.)
I’m just pleased that this fits well, because there were a lot of steps to get through before I could even try it on to check the fit. Whew!
You are such a tease! It looks so good. Can’t wait to see it in action.
