I am still sewing and doing a bit of design too. I’ve started Knit This ~ Sew That so I’ll post progress on projects there more often than what I will probably get to do on this blog here. That being said, here is a picture of the recently completed skirt design.
This was going to be part of a dress, it ended up becoming a skirt and that took a lot of redesigning. The zipper goes the length of the front of the skirt. I added the pocket flaps, designed the waistband and pretty much had to rework the entire dress cutout to make this come together. It took a lot of work but the end product is pretty.
I’ll be back tomorrow with more of the June Month of Writing posts.
