It was my last sewing class Saturday and I’m going to miss it. But at least I have some souvenirs. This is project #3, a leather skirt. It has ribbed knit side panels (an unworthy nod to Rick Owens), an exposed zipper, and (accidental) irregular hem, hence the slip showeth underneath. There were definitely some frustrating and frantic moments with my seam ripper, but I am really excited with the result. My zipper skills and darts (the obstinate puckering!) could use some work. But now armed with a pattern and basic construction knowledge, I can try my hand at getting better. Meanwhile, I have a new found love . . . leathah. Remember Stella from Project Runway?
