So I made a skirt. It was a quick skirt, but I did have to wait until I had the right thread, so it took about a week or so from concept to completeion. It's Simplicity 2512, the Cynthia Rowley skirt. Yeah, you know which one.
In short, it's a little disappointing.
I used taffeta, and my advice is, for this, don't. It killed the shape. It doesn't.... drape. At all. It doesn't even want to subject itself to gravity.
I feel kinda puffy when I wear it. Like a pregnant extra from Lawrence of Arabia.
See what I mean? It's very sad too, because I put a lot of care into the waistband. I really do like that waistband. I bought topstitching thread and everything. Sigh.
Anyone want a skirt?
