back on the bandwagon (for tonight)
tonight, i was trying to sew this skirt. she used an elastic band and is wearing it with a belt. such fashion eludes me. a belt? for a skirt? just for decoration?
*shaky googley eyes*
anyways, i forged onward - hey, i've got a polka dot fabric laying around! it's some kind of synthetic i inherited from my mom's stash and unfortunately, i realize now that i don't have quite enough to make it... fall right. like in the above picture. also, i'm too lazy to wear the right shirt to offset the skirt in the following photos.
super bleh! it makes me look like a fucking bell. it poofs out just enough to look wrong and not enough to look right. *sigh*
so now i'm thinking something like this. more pencil skirt. but it definitely needs a lining. (*ahem*) the skirt material itself feels like a lining, a slip-kind of material. what kind of lining do you use with that? 2 layers of slippery fabric? or a simple thin white muslin? hot pink cotton sheet?
i'm hoping it'll be easy... ish. not sure how the sides should be shaped.
colette shirt was never finished, it's currently sitting, cat-ironed into a sad bundle to the right of my sewing machine.
finish these 2 bits of clothing.
