Extended sewing time

I am enjoying my holiday off today.  I got to spend more uninterrupted time in my sewing room today-very productive time I admint.  I have completed my skirt except for the hemming and attaching a hook and eye at the waistband. 

I again used El's facing technique for an invisible zipper and actually stitched down the lining of the skirt to the zipper tape, making a more polished look than I cannot do with my hand stitching.  I will take some better photos of this later and post.

I am taking a much needed break now and going to take a shower.  I saw a pair of black pumps the other day and decided I am going to go shopping and hope they have them in my size.  My birthday present to myself, a couple of days early!!

This photo was taken with my Black Berry so not the greatest photo, but let's you see the completed skirt.  Strings hanging down are serger threads where I serge finished the skirt and lining hem edges.


  1. What cute frills around the pockets. Love the skirt and glad you enjoyed your MLK day.

  2. Very nice~ I love the ruffle detail!
    BTW, Happy Birthday!!!

  3. Love the pocket frills! I did the same thing on my new coat.

  4. Would like to see photos showing how you attached lining to zipper tape. I'd like to try that. I am also going to use the technique you referred to for the invisible zipper. Nice skirt.
