So I told you I was learning to sew. Here's my most ambitious project yet - and yes, it's wearable! I found this easy elastic waist skirt tutorial at freshly picked.
We had a new discount fabric store open up nearby recently, so I got this fabric (some sort of blend, it has a sheen but not stretch) for $1.97/yd!! This skirt cost me less then $5 to make.
And look, what I'm most proud of:
pockets! Silver matte satin pockets. Sigh, nothing makes me happier than putting effort into something that turns out the way I want it to . . . for the most part (don't look too close at the hem!).
And why, yes, that is my "Linda" brooch I'm wearing with that outfit - truly one of my favorites (named after my mom!).
This project took me, a beginner, a couple of hours to do, and could easily be done in an hour by someone who knows their way around a sewing machine. If you give it a try, send me a pict, I'd love to share it!
