Summer Essentials Sew-Along: skirt

June 23, 2010

Woohoo! I finished something! As I mentioned earlier, I joined the Summer Essentials Sew-Along. “The Summer Essentials Sew-Along asks participants to sew five(-ish) warm-weather friendly pieces by August(-ish).”

Well, last night I finished my Sweet & Sassy Skirt! One down, four(-ish) to go! I used Simplicity 7229, and I’ve written a review for it over at pattern review.

I highly recommend this pattern as an “easy, beginners” pattern. It’s only a couple of pieces to cut and all straight lines to sew. The biggest headache I had was that the fabric was too wide to cut on the bias on my cutting table, so I had to cut it on the floor. But it only took a few moments, so it was fine.

I will eventually get better at taking photos of myself. Until then: here it is:
