|Check out those roomy pockets!|
Matchy matchy. I bought these shoes to match this skirt before I even finished it. That's faith right there. Despite the excessive number of bad pictures I've managed to take of this skirt, I like it and I don't think it looks that bad in real life.
It's the same TNT pattern as my purple skirt, but cut a little bit narrower and shorter to be, well, narrower and shorter. I wanted this one to sit closer to my waist, the purple one is a bit (like, way) too loose for that. I was afraid it might be too short, but it's fine with tights.
Pockets are super important to me, so both of these skirts have nice roomy pockets. I still use the same SOP on pockets that I learned from the Little Heartbreaker Pants in Sewing for Boys. I'm telling you, it's a good book. If there's a book like that about sewing for women I want it. I thought about the Colette Sewing Handbook but I'm not crazy about the patterns in it =(
I used a grey zip because, well, that's what I had. So sue me. If it wasn't sewn in all ugly it would blend in pretty well, but... it is. No I won't show it to you. I will show you the near miss on the pockets though.
I only had a yard of this fabric and I just barely fit all the pieces. I ended up piecing the pockets with the contrast lining fabric which was a mistake. I mean, if this shit wasn't shifty as the devil himself and I didn't basically suck at life it would've been fine but as it is you can see it peeping out from underneath. Fail.
Fabric: $2. Zipper: 10 cents. A very small amount of thread, let's just not count thread eh?
Total for this project: $2.10
Running total: $3.20
Not bad for two skirts I love.
