Side Note: This was the first time I’d purchased fabric online. I was a little disappointed that the fabric felt a bit rougher than I anticipated, but I still like it. If I’d had a sample in advance I probably would have chosen a different type of fabric (still the same print though), but I was too excited to buy this fabric to bother with samples first. Lesson learned.
My overall feeling about this project is that I don’t know why I waited so long to pick it back up again. It took me only a short while to finish the skirt from where I’d left off. (Seriously, I finished it on Sunday and I still managed to real half a book that day.) This skirt got rave reviews at the office on Wednesday. Everyone there knows I sew, so they’re always interested it what I’m wearing and asking if it’s handmade.
I'm hoping to get a few better shots of the skirt later this week, but lighting in our house is a bit of an issue when it's nearly dark by the time I get home. I'll update the photos as soon as I can.
