It was my first time sewing with a very fine, flowing fabric. This was a challenge!
The fabric was so thin that I decided to NOT use a pattern but to cut from my own measurements. I first measured my waist then I added 3 inches. I knew I wanted this to be full - mostly because it makes it an easier sewing project! I didn't want to have to had buttons, ties, zippers, or anything but an elastic.
I then cut across the length I wanted, and I cut down from the waist out about 3 inches to the length, making an "A" line. After I cut out the pieces, I sewed them together, making a french seam.
After that, I sewed a casing for the elasic at the waist, zig-zag stitched the bottom and folded it up to make the hem.
I have a blue shirt and a brown shirt I will wear this with. What do you think?
I hope you get the chance to be creative today!
