Remember that skirt I made at the end of the summer? I was all philosophical about it, thinking I had learned a good lesson from the incorrect fit of it for me. Apparently not, because even though I thought I was changing the fit issue, I just drafted this pattern with the same exact issue. SO, dear self, take note: you DO NOT like to wear your skirts below your belly button!!! Otherwise the skirt is quite lovely with its buttoned closure and half-moon pockets.
So rather than wearing it as a sample at the show this weekend it will be on display and perhaps someone out there will be its perfect match. If someone happens to love it, but it isn’t just right for their body? I’ll be taking measurements for custom orders.
The sleeves are fuller in this version and gathered with a contrasting fabric, and the neckline is bound with the same contrasting fabric. There’s not a button on this one. I couldn’t find just what I wanted and decided it was better without any button than a less-than-perfect button. And, of course, there are those out in the big wide world who aren’t button-lovers, either.
I have a couple of other designs not yet photographed for this weekend, and a new little twist for my bulk food bags, too. If only I could decide how to display it all! I hope to still be in tomorrow with a moment from the week. But if I’m not, you can be sure I’ll be back next week with many moments from Mayday to share here.
