I took some photos before work this morning and decided to take them in a diffferent location instead of the second bedroom or the hallway. The kitchen became the new location.
|Front view-I played with the lighting on Cyberlink Photo software|
|Side view-this is truer color of teal top and skirt|
|I wore the white crochet type cardi just for a little warmth in my overly cooled office|
For a quick fix I plan to insert a gusset in the front area to give a little more width; the other solution is to add a piece at the side seams to let it out some. There is a dropped yoke skirt in this collection and I think the control panel would work best for that one and perhaps for the pencil style.
Other than the control panel annoyance, I truly like the skirt and the quick and easy sew. My fabric feels good also. I think there will be a next time for this style for fall to wear with boots, I will leave off the control panel.
I think the size runs true to size. This was based on using your waist size for the correct size for this swing skirt.
I have some other Love Notions patterns to try. But first will complete the red tank and cardi.
