more progress with the skirt..
Well, after making the sable cookies I felt inspired to go back to the skirt in progress. I was a little bit baffled on how I was going to attach the lining, since I had already attached the facings to the skirt. So, I improvised on how to attach it- success!! I could not follow the directions completely from the Connie Long book, so I attached the lining by sewing it to the top of the facing, 3/8 of an inch away from the raw edge. It looks lovely!! (Well especially with the bias binding edge of the facing and seeing the lining out of the same fabric. It looks so chi chi!
There is not too much left to do with the skirt- hem the lining, attach the lining at the zip and add the glorious satin ribbon to the front of the skirt!
