I Loathe Linings
I have dozens of projects on my list, but this book has been sitting on my cutting table for about 2 months waiting for me to feel motivated. Can you believe that I only paid $2 for this at the thrift shop?
- The lining is inside out
- The zipper looks like it was installed by a monkey
- I only had enough lace for 2 "tiers"
- The waist needs to be brought in another inch
- The bottom tier did not match up properly with the main skirt
- This took me 2 DAYS!!
Ultimately, I know how to fix all of the problems for the next skirt, and this pattern is pretty good. I have already made a note to use bias tape as a waist band facing so that I don't ever have to deal with lining again. And, there are a ton of cute skirts in this book that I can see myself wearing, so I really want to not hate this pattern. Just have to work out the kinks, right?
