I'm pretty ballsy. I'll attempt something that I've never done before with a fabric I've never worked with before. Why not? What could go wrong?
That's where Simplicity 1427 comes in. Lately I've been obsessed with tulle skirts and I can't buy one here because buying bottoms in Japan forget about it. Of course, I can buy basics here but anything cute apparently only comes in a size small (which means XS in America). Boo.
Anyway, here's this pattern:
I decided to go for the longer version though I shortened it a little (because I'm short enough and don't want to get buried in tulle). That was the easy part. The hard part was hemming a satin fabric inner skirt. It looks awful but maybe it's not noticeable, and I don't really feel like fixing it right now. The yoke part was ridiculous, and I sewed on the underskirt wrong and had to take it out and redo it. (Hooray for a day off!) After looking at pictures of the skirt I'm also sure that the casing is wrong. This is also not noticeable, and I also don't want to fix this. (In case you're wondering these are reasons I don't sew things for other people. I can abide and hide my mistakes but I don't want others finding them.) I think that's all that's wrong with the skirt. The directions were kind of confusing, so it's amazing that a skirt came out of all this.
Regardless, I think it turned out pretty good, and it's totally wearable:
Sorry guys, I couldn't fit this skirt in the mirror for a picture. What do you think? I don't totally suck at sewing.
