I'm making the skirt that is orange in the illustration. The pattern claims it is a 2-hour skirt. I say, yeah--not so much. I'm not sure what step they start on but obviously they skip fabric prep, finding the pattern pieces in the tissue packet, then laying out and cutting the pieces for the skirt--all before sewing even begins.
This rayon challis has been in my stash for a very very long time. It doesn't look like much here, but the 8 gore skirt is cute on, and comes to just below the knee. It will be great for work. I have some adjustments to make to the hip area and then can finish all the seams, turn down the top for the waistband and add the elastic and finally hem the skirt. That will take more than 2 hours too! Anyway, I've sewn enough that I knew that was a false estimate :)
The top to a Quilts for Kids kit was also completed over the weekend. I added the corner triangles for some additional interest. See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
