so in posting the jenny skirt yesterday, i realized that i had completely forgotten to blog another skirt i made recently.
Pattern: McCalls 5591, View A with no contrast band
Fabric: Timeless Treasures quilting cotton, Poppies, i think?
Started and Finished: right before i did the jenny skirt. super bowl weekend i think.
one day i will get the tweaking just right. i've made this skirt before. the last time i did it, i didn't like how high the waist sat, so this time i sewed 3/8" side seams at the waist and graded to 5/8" around the pocket area. i think i liked it better before. it hits me at the right place at the hem, but it sits too low at the waist and it looks weird. also the pockets are too low to be comfortable. what i really needed to do was keep the waist where it was and add length to the hem. i swear i will get it right next time.
i will be making this skirt again because it's a great basic and i got some zebra fabric just waiting to be cut out. i want to do View B. the pleats are a little different and it has side seam pockets. hopefully third time's the charm will work for this skirt too.
