Tremendous amounts of talent are lost to our society
just because that talent wears a skirt.
~ Shirley Chisholm
Over the last week or so, I made myself TWO skirts! Both were yoked skirts with a a zipper - one on the side and one in the center back. It was interesting to make the two skirts right in a row, so that I was able to compare the patterns and their effects.
First, this simple A-line skirt in an Alexander Henry print:
Next, this skirt - not a full circle skirt, but definitely fuller (and shorter) than the A-line above:
They both fit well and the yokes are the same width - but you can see the length and fullness comparisons here:
Both were quick and simple to make - and are fun to wear. For work, the A-line is better - for dancing, the pink flowers! ;)
I'm so happy to be back in the sewing room! And...
... that's not all that I'm back to...
Wait until you see what I was up to over the weekend... ;)
