As promised, here's my newly made skirt:
It's another McCall's 3830, but this one has a few changes. I added two more darts to both the front and the back, and I also added a waistband. The top is New Look 6150 and an infinity scarf, blogged about here.
The fabric is from Joann's home dec department, on sale, and I chose it because I think the colors can span a couple seasons.
The skirt is underlined with black poly/cotton broadcloth to give it a little more body and to, hopefully, stave off wrinkles. All edges were serged prior to sewing the seams.
I inserted an invisible zipper using my brand new Bernina foot on my old Bernina 930--and it came out perfectly! Yay! For the hem, I used the blindstitch foot on my newish Babylock sewing machine.
All in all, I'm pleased with the whole outfit. I'll try to get some modeled shots soon. In the meantime, happy sewing!
