I am making a new skirt

There’s no pattern for this, I just used a skirt that I like as a reference point so keep your fingers crossed.

I had a great surprise with this fabric – my sewing machine will not sew it in four layers so I had to sew the waistband by hand. And while sewing it by hand I understood why my machine wouldn’t sew it. The weave is so tight you could collect rainwater in it.

Another miscalculation were the pockets. I wanted to add two simple lateral pockets, then I realized – I am sewing a side zipper so one pocket would suffer. Aargh. The blessings of thinking once and cutting twice.

I can’t wait to finish it and see the final product :>
