Right after my last post, May 21, I finally finished a winter skirt just to get it off the table.
I finished the skirt on May 30 and took some pictures.
I used pattern McCall's 6654:
I made two layers, one skinnier than the other. I used the long, slim version and made it based on my measurements. I had to take it in about two inches. I flared it out while cutting to make an outer layer.
I shortened the outer layer it with a hi-lo hem to enhance the layered effect. Here's how I cut the outer layer:
I attached the skirts to the elastic in opposite directions:
The inner layer is a very slick knit of man-made fibers. The outer layer is a lightweight sweater knit. Here's how it looks on the table:
Here's how it looks on me:
I put this away to save it for "winter" (in Florida, that's anything under 50 degrees Fahrenheit).
I have a big project waiting for me to work on it. I will share when I'm done with it.
