Project #49 – Number Skirt

Arg. I didn’t quite finish today’s project, so Make-A-Skirt Thursday will probably turn into Make-A-Skirt Friday morning. I head wasn’t quite in the game so I ended up ripping out more seams than usual. Puh.

The pattern is view A McCall’s 5591. I really like how this pattern doesn’t use much fabric, but it still delivers a full skirt with pockets, and pockets are my favorite. I lengthened the skirt in lieu of the hem band, but it still used less than 1.5 meters of fabric.

I still need to insert a zipper, iron it, and hem it, but I’m too achy from picking out misplaced stitches (and cursing about breaking my good seam ripper) to finish before going to bed.

The fabric is from Yuzawaya in Kamata. Clark and his former host mom made faces when I showed it to them, but I knew from the second I bought it that I would make it into a skirt. It’s a cute fabric…hmm…maybe too cute. Women can still wear stuff like the this if they’re under 30, right?
