Clemence Skirt - more lesson learning, this time with sewing

My third project from Tilly and the Buttons' Love at First Stitch. Intoducing my Clemence Skirt!


Lessons I have learned from making this - read the pattern instructions!

I wasn't carful with my cutting, and instead of cutting one piece on the fold for my waistband, I ended up cutting two pieces that weren't on the fold! Luckily there was a bit of fabric left over from my excellent $3 Fabricabrac Wellington find and we managed to piece a waistband together. It's meant that the side seams of the skirt and the band don't match up, and I had some serious zip installation issues, but I finished it all and am wearing it proudly! No one else has spotted my mistakes just yet...
