Old News

I forgot to post that, sometime ago, I whipped up another skirt. 

 It's yet another  Pattern Emporium Heartlight Skirt.   I didn't use my projector, I have a card template for this.   Imade a slight adjustment to the waistband, and it's now both comfortable and it stays in place.

The wardrobe mirror is too narrow really but it gives you an idea.     

When I had the fabric on mmy cutting table, DH walked past and said "Ooh, scuba!".    It made me chuckle that he knew what it was and was so proud of himself for knowing.

 I'm proud of him too .

We had been watching reruns of old series of The Great British Sewing Bee so pattern matching was at the forefront of my mind.    It's a quite flowy skity, so I've had to pull it to show the seam.

It's not perfect, but I am really happy with it.
