Skirt progress

Kwik Sew 2946
Cut out KS 2946 from a blue tie-dye polyester (moleskin? microsuede?). The fabric is fuzzy on one side and smooth on the other. It’s very easy to cut and sew.

Precut and shrank touch ‘o gold interfacing. I’ve always struggled with how to preshrink fusible interfacing yardage. This time, I rough cut the pattern pieces and preshrank those. It’s much more manageable than trying to preshink 6 yards of interfacing.

KS2946 has excellent instructions. I particularly like the fact that they tell you when to finish the edges.

I finished the skirt except for the hem and snaps.

The front waist is too high, as usual. Blinding Flash of the Obvious!!! It’s much easier to alter the back waist by raising it 2 inches than try to lower the front waist.
