With the leftovers from this dress, I managed to cut out a pencil skirt (just barely!). The pattern was out because I am still working on this skirt, so why not start another?
The rest of the project was cobbled together with stashed items.
The bemberg lining was purchased online years ago . . . when it arrived, the color was not what I was expecting, but it has finally come in handy.
I interfaced the waistband with leftover quilting cotton. And there was even a suitable invisible zipper on hand.
The boning is the cheap stuff, and the casing it comes in is garbage. The stuff frays like crazy and it was almost impossible to get the boning back in once it was stitched into place. Of course, I could have made my own channels, but I was feeling too lazy for that.
I am not having much success with completing projects so far this year, but that does not keep me from starting the next. Case in point, this skirt still needs a few thread tacks at the hemline . . .
So this one is staying on the dress form and in my face until I find the motivation to finish what will probably take a total of fifteen minutes. But at the moment, I would rather work on my Alabama Chanin skirt . . . so, what can you do?!
