OK, well, my skirt isn't really upside down, but the fabric is. I don't know how many times I've done this and I don't know why it never occurs to me to check the direction of the nap before I cut. I always make sure that the pieces are all going the same direction, but not the right direction
OH, well, only my dear readers will know!
I lined this skirt, but another mistake here. I cut the lining on the cross grain because I did not have enough fabric. Not a good idea. There is NO give in the thigh area of this skirt - at all. Actually, the skirt is fine, but the lining is too tight. I will have to take out the side seams a little but I only made 3/8" seams to begin with. Oh well, a little more incentive to get to the gym more often!
And another problem. I started making this top and I love the hand of the fabrics. I like the style. I hate whatever it is I did to the front. I'm not sure I can even fix it. I'm going to look at it again today and see if there is a way to either fix or cover this . I have an idea of using a little "patch" with some buttons for embellishment. Today is my dad's 85th birthday, so I'll be gone this afternoon and have homework tonight - but I still want to finish this top!
