Ta Da! My HP 24/7 Pencil Skirt is finished!
I know I am feeling better when I am up to being photographed. Here is the re-reveal of my pencil skirt:
See how the unsightly crease under the tummy is basically gone? I will happily wear this skirt now.
the Three Graces top, I am relieved that this went well. HotPatterns, you have redeemed yourself!
Calm, Cool and Cowl Conundrum
In other news, here is the story on my 3 C's top. After I sewed the top portion (on knit jersey) and the bottom portion (on rib knit), I basted them together to see how they looked. NOT GOOD! The rib is simply too thick and bunchy, and the color is off - a different shade of black. I thought it would be ok because of the texture of the ribs. What can I say? I was wrong. So, I ordered a different lightweight baby rib from Fabric.com and will see if it's any better once it arrives. 'til then it is on hold.
For the first time in a while, I have nothing cut and waiting to be sewn. So, I have some work cut out for me. Oh and at Phin's suggestions I will also be making my next mac+cheese for the Super Bowl on Sunday. Have a great weekend!
