The first skirt

This is the Emily skirt, and the great fabric came from Sew Mama Sew.This is a fairly easy pattern. The pleats worked out great with this particular print. I was able to get the stripe to fall right into the pleat. The one change I will make the next time I make this skirt is to face the whole yoke. As it is now the facing only comes down halfway in the yoke underneath. This would be fine if I had the lithe body of my youth, but now I have a few bumps and soft spots around the middle that are not as well hidden by that short facing.

  1. Girl, you live across the street from Oprah and you don’t wear Spanx? No need to cook the yolk or whatever — just go to I highly recommend the Power Panties. Gwyneth wears two pair at a time, ok? Also – the Braleluiah, it’s super ugly but equally super in comfort.
