Parade of Skirts- First Projects of 2014

Instead I have one simple goal: take it easy, enjoy, sew slowly and consistently. My first project for 2014 were two lined navy blue Ponte knit skirts with an elastic waist. The fabrics were purchase last summer (2013) on one of my shopping/luncheon all about sewing and friendship adventures with my sewing buddies. A total of 6 pieces of Ponte knits (two of each, black, navy and caramel) were purchased. At the time of purchase I knew that I was in desperate need of skirts in basic colors to add to my work wardrobe. I made two navy blue Ponte knit skirts this weekend. Here I am wearing the one of the navy blue skirt. Next, I will work on the caramel color and it should be assemble line sewing. In the next post I will do a review of the pattern I drafted. Later.
