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!
