Recently, I made a skirt and it turned out okay, but kind of puffy/poofy. I think I actually made it in May but as I just photographed it yesterday I'm going to say it was new in June.
|Ignore bad picture and dirty mirror, note poof|
Pattern: Nothing official, I just measured another skirt that I have and tried my best to copy it.
Fabric: Most of the skirt is light blue solid with a grey polka dot for one layer, the trim, and the tie. I'm 80% sure that both of them came from Walmart...
New Techniques: clothing, making a really skinny tube, ruffles, and using the button holer (I was really excited to use the automatic button hole thing on my sewing machine - so cool!)
The other thing that is new to me in June 2013 would be Korea. I left my homeland on June 5 and have been experiencing new things everyday! I am slowly but surely learning the Korean alphabet and I can now sound out most words even if I don't know what they mean. My vocabulary is limited to numbers, phrases of politeness, and a few food names but I am working on that too. The lab that I'm working in is quite different from the one I'm used to, as is the food. Barely a day goes by when I don't eat something new!
And now, because I'm being all kinds of efficient, a link to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!
