Skirts, a la eternalmagpie


Posted at 20 Oct 2008 09:30:00 AM

I've almost* finished two skirts using eternalmagpie's tutorial. The hallowe'en one is lined, and the red one is a black satin base and red shimmery sheer layer.

I still have one more black satin base, which will be made into a 3rd skirt as soon as I find another mesh or sheer layer to put over it. I thought I had enough of a remnant from some other projects, but not so much as it turned out.

* All I could find for elastic was regular ol' quarter-inch, but didn't realize it 'til after I'd already sewed the layers together at the top (folded outwards). So now I'm going to grab some wide satin ribbon to do a quick foldover binding at the top to hide the rough edges.


Seems I can't put fabric on the floor for 15 seconds without someone getting curious...

Is anybody strong in radio here? We need a colleague who would tell us briefly about the transistor T2. I hope there are radio amateurs here. If it`s not on the subject at all, then I`m sorry. I have to write because I have no choice. PS: if the spelling is not right then also I'm sorry, I'm just 13 years old!....
