Here is the completed skirt I promised to show. Overall I think it's just ok. I have an idea for my next skirt that I'm super excited about. No more of this drawstring nonsense. I don't think I'm a fan of the ginormous hole that you step into and then cinch up. Plus then you have to neatly distribute the gathers. Too much work. I'd rather put in a zipper or something. Anyway, I drafted my own pattern using Sew What! Skirts.
A (too bright) close up of the fabrics. The whale fabric is from my stash. Love it, but I can never find a good use for it.
In other exciting news, my first sampler subscription came! Here are some of my favorites... I will eventually add notes to flickr on what they are. LOVE the iron on octopus.
