Completed Projects!











The next two skirts were completed before this past weekend. Blogger was not cooperative for me to download my photos and I just got another chance today. This skirt from Simplicity 3962 is semi-fitted on the front/back top sections and has a flounce attached. It was very easy to make. The skirt pattern has two lengths and the waist is finished with bias ribbon or binding.
Next was Butterick 4618, a semi-fitted straight skirt with back zipper & slit. I found this one already cut out between some old magazines!!! Don't know how it got there! LOL
The other skirt I planned to make will probably be thrown out. I don't like the fabric and it is not worth the time. No wonder it has been folded up waiting to be sewn. What was I thinking! HAHA! Something else could have been done with that, but I don't know what. Oh well. On to the next thing.

Nice skirts! I have had a few of those what was I thinking moments myself.

Yeah, very nice skirts. Love the colors.

Lovely skirts! My what-was-I-thinking moments are usually related to pattern buying. There are a couple of doozies in my stash that would look horrid on me, and I don't know why they're there. Must be the allure of $1 pattern sales.
