I've had this pattern for years, and made the jacket, cami, and skirt before. I love the simplicity and fit of the skirt, but haven't been able to fit into this pattern. See previous post "Weightloss Wednesday"...
Now that I've lost a few pounds and inches, I can fit into this lovely again (size 14, woo hoo!), so I grabbed some fantastic stretch cotton sateen I got from Gorgeous Fabrics not too long ago, and whipped this up on Monday and Wednesday. (I got the last of the fabric, so don't bother looking... mwah ha ha!)
It can't get any easier than 3 pattern pieces, ya know? I'll admit, I cheated on the inside a little. Instead of turning the facing edge under and hand-stitching down, I serged that lower edge, which finished the seam cleanly and anchored the facing, too. Yes, you can see my bright blue zipper peeking out, that's okay, I don't mind.
I've got a cute little top partially assembled to go with it, using Simplicity 2570. I should have that finished tomorrow, and I'll photograph the ensemble together and post again this weekend. Love the shoes? Target! My store was out of my size, so I ordered them online, along with another pair you'll see soon.
ETA: Here's the link for the shoes! Like I told Laura, I think this is called "enabling"!!!
Thanks for all the supportive comments on my "getting healthy" plan. It's so nice to know that I've got cheerleaders out there! I'll admit that this morning the realization dawned on me that the pants Kenneth King helped me fit the muslin for will now be obsolete, and I was a little bummed. But, I guess I'll just have to get back to NYC for another class so he can help me fit a new skinny pair, huh? (Can you here DH laughing from where you're at? I can...)
