My FIRST Skirt!!!

WOW, is one word that I would used to describe my first time EVER using a pattern.  For it is was like trying to translate a foreign language and not knowing the language.  It's a good thing I had some awesome interpreters (Momma F and Em, thanks for the countless instructions and not getting annoyed by my billion phone calls!).

After finishing I've realized that I was a fairly easy pattern to use.  Despite my serious lack in sewing skills, my skirt turned out pretty good (in my opinion).  The most important things are #1: It fits.  #2: No one can see my mistakes because they are on the inside!

The hardest part for me was sewing the zipper! That will probably take a few times in order for me to master that one!  Overall I am really proud that I finished my first clothing sewing project and it wasn't a complete disaster. 

Thanks again for all the help!!!
I forgot to take a picture of me wearing it, but it did look good if I do say so myself!

  1. Woohoo!!! Great job Ashlee. (I still hate sewing zippers.) They drive me nuts. Looks very cute

  2. Very Nice!! I'm proud of you! And zippers stink! We want to see a picture of it on!

  3. Wow, Ash! I'm super impressed... And I love the fabric.

  4. Good job and way to be fearless. Darts and zippers on the first project is not the easiest thing to accomplish.

  5. Lexanne---Good for you Ashlee. Considering its you're first time will give you some credit. :)---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
