Don't you hate it when you are putting on your girdle, but you can't see the hook and eyes because your boobs get in the way...?
Come on, don't act like I'm the only one!
Welp, I'm almost finished with the 12 gored skirt.
I almost didn't have enough fabric for the skirt. I had to redo the layout of some of hte pieces. It was one giant puzzle, but no piecing, yay! I marked each piece VERY carefully so I wouldn't have any mess ups. Once I started sewing it it went together fairly quickly.
I would have posted images sooner, but Aunt Flow came for her visit and I couldn't fit into the skirt! Yay water weight gain! Four days later, I was able to fit into it.
This garment is what I would call a 'only wear under right conditions' skirt. The pleats are sewn down over the bum and abdomen making it very form fitting and I didn't add much ease. But I do look cute in it, thanks to foundation garments. All I have to do on it now is add a hook and bar closure at the waist, and hem the skirt about 1/2".
Once I make my ticking girdle that nips my waist more, I'll look super hot!
On another note, how is everyone doing with their Make & Mend projects. I have one more to do, the make something for someone else.
The good news is, I'm making a mother and daughter apron for a friend. The bad news is, all the supplies won't be here until next month. Crumbs. Also, I've gotten a couple of emails form ladies suggesting more time, so I'm going to extend Make & Mend through August so people have more time.
If you haven't started yet, now there is no excuse. Get to mendin'!
