Following the great Butterick B5206 Bodice Fiasco of March 2010, I've been a little disheartened. If only I hadn't been sewing with something quite so sheer. That sheer stupidity is always so difficult to work with.
With my confidence dented, pieces of B5206 have languished on the sewing table since last week.
So yesterday I decided to pull myself together and climb back on the horse. I found a straight-forward Kwik Sew pattern and some lovely heavy cotton lycra knit, then got to work on a skirt.
I cut, I sewed. I overlocked. The pattern was simple; the fabric was pleasing to work with. I was happy - what a gratifying project.
I rode into the home straight, preparing to admire my finished skirt. When I noticed. Oh dear, I'd sewn the waistband to the skirt inside out. Quelle surprise.
Yep, still on the horse. But clearly riding over the finish line, with one foot caught in a stirrup and hanging upside down in the saddle.
Kwik Sew 3513
Ignore my misfortune - this pattern for a pull-on stretch knit skirt is great! Its very quick to sew (even if you have to cut the waistband off and sew it on again) and comfy to wear. I have posted a review of 3513 here at PatternReview.com
