Ok, so who really thought I would make all 5 skirts in 5 days for the sew-along? Of course not.

Days 1, 2, and 3 were great. Day 4 and 5, not so much.

I did sew skirt #4...let me tell you about it. I bought this dress for Anna Jane last summer:

4th 001

She wore it twice before too much of her long legs stuck out of the bottom of the skirt. The problem wasn't the length of the skirt, though. It was more like the bodice was too short. So off with the bodice!!

A little elastic and a sew-along, and here we are!

4th 006

No 5th skirt to speak of. There is a haunting voice in the back of my head telling me to make one for myself. But the voice at the front of my head (which happens to have a better view of my wallet and my reflection in the mirror) tells me that it would take more fabric than I would like to pay for (or need to cover these hips).
