I am almost done with another skirt for A, except that I find the current fashion for lowered waistlines very confusing because you don’t know how wide the waist is suppposed to be for fitting purposes. This is no problem if the person is here to try it on, but my daughter lives an hour away. I decided to wait to hem it until she can try it on. I hope the waist is not too wide, but too bad if it is, because I’m not ripping out all that topstitching. We’ll just have to try a ‘There I Fixed It” sort of solution.
Anyway, here’s a little invention I have been putting on yoked skirts since the dark ages when they were in style when I was in high school.
When there is a centered back zipper, instead of trying to sew on a hook and eye or some other fussy closure, I sew a little tab and put a buttonhole in it so that it covers the top of the zipper. It is easier to fasten and looks neater.
This day is sunny and bright, the trees are blooming, and no rain is falling. I was going to try and watch all the Psych episodes I had stored up (I can never remember the new time slot, so I set the TV to record it), but apparently there is some basketball game on that requires the spouse to claim the TV. I think I will go listen to a book-on-tape and cut out another skirt.
