Skirt needs hemming

Here is a not so good photo of V8603 skirt that is basically complete except for the hemming. This was taken with my Samsung Galaxy Player.  DH just bought this for me and besides just playing music, I can take photos, send me email, etc.  So not too bad of a photo.

It looks a little more shiny than it is in "real" time.

This fit very well.  I used 18 at the waist tapering to 16 at hip line.  I ended up taking 3/4 inch seams at waist to hip.

The pattern calls for a lining; this fabric has a thick knit type backing and decided not to line.  I used Teflon foot for most of the sewing; I inserted an invisible zipper.  I just need to hem and I am ready to start another skirt project.  More photos later.


  1. I love this skirt, I have made it so many time in various ways apart from the one with the gathering at the side (might make my hips look even bigger). Yours will look really good with your fabric.

  2. That is looking really nice. I wish I had bought that fabric.

  3. That is so beautiful! You are one serious sewer.
