This weekend I sewed myself a skirt for my conference next week. I think it turned out great! I really love how bright it is. I borrowed Sew What! Skirts from Beth and it was so easy to follow. I ended up with the waist too big and added some darts, and I used a zipper too. I think after a few more, this pattern will be second nature. Next time I’ll adjust the pattern to have a smaller waist and not need darts. I hope to have time this week to make one more and a business card holder, but I’ll have to see how much work my presentation needs first!

The skirt turned out really cute! I really like the method of skirt making in this book. I’ve only made a couple elastic waisted skirts but they’ve turned out exactly how I wanted them. It’s nice to not be reliant on a pattern!
Are you going to make the Amy Butler Free Pattern Business Card Keeper? Because I tried to make it and it didn’t turn out and a couple of friends have tried to make it without any luck. Just thought I’d let you know. :)
Oh no, that was the pattern I was going to use! I guess I’ll hold off. Thanks for the heads up!
