~ Recent Sewing Projects ~

I have a skirt, that I wear allll the time, so I used that skirt, for my pattern.
and it actually worked! ;)

I love how the waist band turned out...

I found this 3XL shirt at Walmart, and decided to make it into a skirt also.
I used the first skirt I made, as a pattern. 
(the weird piece of fabric to the right, is the waist band I cut out of the sleeve.) 

The draw-string waist band.

I decided to leave the pocket on the back. 
(but you probibly can't even see it)  :P

I tried "gammets" (the little metal rings for the drawstring) 
for the first time, and I love them!

Hope you all have a great day!
