April Skirt

Because I finished this yesterday, April 1, I'm counting this as my April item for my 12 sewing items 2012.  The tag "2012 Sewing" which will be all the appearal items I make this year.

I'm also counting this because if I don't get around to finishing something else this month, or it doesn't work out very well, I can count this one as #4. ;)

Again.  A very basic skirt.  Straight with elastic waist and pockets.  These are my favorites to make and wear.

I found the material at walmart, on clearance, for $2 a yard.  Used 2 yards.  I had the elastic as I buy a large amount, enough for 3 skirts and it costs only $1.50 or so.  The thread was used on my last 2 projects too.

I'm using inexpensive fabric to get use to sewing and learning what I'm sewing and how to sew it.  A skirt I did a while ago is too long and I need to hem.  I never would have found that out if I didn't wear it outside of my little apartment and that's why I don't do muslin.

Here's a close up

I changed my comments, I hope this works. I added a section where you have to type in something because of the spam I was receiving.
