Echino Circle Skirt

I couldn’t resist making good use of my Echino fabric from CityCraft. Ive been trying not to hoard fabric, and this 60 inch print was bought with a specific goal in mind – my first circle skirt!

Also, two books came in the mail today, giving me a lot of inspiration!

As I pressed, pinned, and sewed my hem, I started singing “This is the hem that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend…”

Also, this was my first project using my serger, which hates me. A lot. No matter what I did with the tension, the bottom side was, for lack of a better adjective, loopy. I decided to just plow through and deal with figuring out the machine later. Loopy is better than frayed edges.

Attaching the elastic waistband was a challenge because I had to stretch the elastic as I sewed it to the cotton. Luckily my wonky stitches blend into the elastic.

Overall a success that I’m eager to wear to work later this week.

Happy sewing,
Skylar
