Could be worse. You could be wearing a skirt.

The Skirt: Take 2

I liked Liz's suggestion of making a pillow. But my mom convinced me to try making the skirt again.

So first, I unpicked the entire thing. Then I put the zipper back in with the smallest seam possible. I did the smallest seams possible down the back and down the sides.

Then I unpicked the darts.

And it fit!

I decided that after all that, I was totally never going to try and put a hem in, and the pattern said to do the waistband with twill tape, so I just bought some bias tape and ran it around the waist and the hem.

(Please ignore the hair -- It's HOT!)


  1. Yay! Way to go, sewing is hard. It looks good.

  2. It looks great! love it! love Tokyo!
