The photo is a bit fuzzy but I hope you get the idea.
Next I made a couple of skirts. The pattern is McCall's 5523:
I also made this skirt back in February for Joanna. You can read about the previous incarnations of the blouse and skirt here.
The first skirt is black - fairly plain on the front.
But with a fish-tail on the back.
As usual, I didn't make facings at the waist but used some fancy home-made bias binding instead.
The second skirt is a dark brown version of the same pattern. Plain on the front -
Fish-tail on the back.
With some fancy bias binding inside.
I am past the half-way mark of the jacket I cut out for myself. I could have finished it today but the sun was shining so I decided to make the most of it and went outside instead. I believe rain is forecast for tomorrow - quelle surprise! - so I'll maybe get the jacket finished tomorrow.
