I had planned to sew SOMETHING. But nothing has emerged from my sewing machine, so I guess that didn't really "plan". I did manage to pre-wash some fabric...
Okay, I know I'm supposed to machine baste the crossgrain edges of the fabric before pre-washing (and I did), but this denim STILL managed to have a jolly old time unravelling in the wash. I wonder what really went on in that washer..?
Oh, and before I forget. I finally washed and ironed the skirt I made and wore last week. Here are a few (not so good) pics of it.
The fabric is an army-ish/pea green twill of some sort. I'm not sure exactly what it is as I got it for $1/yd at Walmart years ago. It's a thicker, denim-y weight. I paired it with a brown top and a3/4 sleeve multicolored jacket (also shown).
To get it to fit my "rounded rump", I added an inch to each back side seam and lowered the center back 3 inches, which I then (haphhazardly) "blended" back up to the side seams. Somehow that worked.
I didn't plan it - was just trying to use up stash fabric - but the skirt manages to already match a number of items in my wardrobe! Now if only I didn't have to work tomorrow... Oh, and I should probably post a review for this pattern on PR, shouldn't I? No time now. Will do on the morrow.
