Skirt in the making

I have been busy since leaving work on Friday.  I did my grocery shopping after work and Saturday was a day of doing nothing but sewing and grilling.  I made great progress on the McCall's skirt yesterday and today.  Here are photos of my progress from yesterday and early this morning.

I use Design Plus Fusbile bias and straight tape to reinforce zipper area.

I took these photos this morning.  This evening I sewed the other side seam together and the same sewing was completed with the lining fabric.  In trying on the skirt, I took deeper seams at waist area of center front and center back seams.  All that is left to do is attach the lining, skirt facings, sew hook and eye and hem lining and skirt fabric.

Having made this pattern previously, this was a nice garment to sew and only referred to instructions periodically. 

More updates to follow.  I am already planning my next garment-a dress!
Happy Memorial Day tomorrow!
