Adventures in garment construction. (Plus random thoughts, photos of interesting places and stuff I've made!)
Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

I did wear the skirt to work!
So the skirt was actually from Butterick 3972.
I made the full length version, but shortened it by about 3" by taking some off the top and some off the bottom so as not to affect the interesting lines too much. I remember this being very popular in my sewing class at the time, and a few people made it. It has an elastic waist, but still quite nice shaping due to being cut on the bias in sections.
The asymmetric version with contrast panels looks interesting and would be cool with boots in the winter time.
In 2007 I made this for my SWAP in a dirty denim, and made it reversible!
