I wanted to make the deadline, and since I was going to be away all weekend, I broke into sewing hyperdrive tonight.
Pattern: Dana 0405 (wrap skirt) from Fitzpatterns.com
Fabric: 100% Cotton Olive Twill w/ slight grey pinstripe
It took me about 4 hours, which I think it really should have taken 2. You can read more about my trials on my blog, if you would like.
I saw that a couple other people on the sidebar had planned on using this pattern from fitz too. I was wondering if the waistband was too small for you also. I had to cut another 3 lengths to make it long enough to tie!
