So because Monday was a holiday I actually had spare time to sit down and start my sewing project, something that I've been looking forward to ever since I made the first post about it. I put some fun swing music on and decided to get started. So here we go, step by step the construction of The Blues Skirt.
(Complete with hipster camera filter!)
Step 1: I laid out my fabric and folded it over, wanting to cheat a little and use the fold part as the bottom section so that I wouldn't have to hem it. I figured it would look cleaner this way and would probably lay straighter.
Step 2: I folded the fabric again, this time the opposite way and pinned down the sides. Creating a tube shape.
But when I came back I slipped on my creation and took a look see at my handiwork.
Total time to make: 2 hours
Total cost: 15$
Things I learned while making this item: using a zig zag stich on semi spandex fabric is better than a straight stitch, when making slits do a triangle and not straight line, and finally don't do laundry at the same time as sewing projects because you WILL forget and look like an asshole for leaving your stuff in the washing machine for over an hour.....
