Project: Marie Skirt Re-Do
Ok, so I ripped it all apart. I chopped some pieces off. I sewed it back together. I'm not super happy with it, but it's done. And semi-wearable. I had to cut a lot off because I ended up using rectangular skirt pieces rather than the curved ones originally in the pattern...making this skirt pretty short, probably scandalously short without tights. I'm still not a big fan, it's just not a flattering shape for me. I probably should have chosen to run the grain of the fabric the other way, making the pleats lie flatter. Live and learn.

P.S. I'm in the process of drafting a dress. My first one EVER. I'm kind of excited about actually designing a garment completely from scratch!
