It's like my subconscious doesn't want me to make a skirt of this fabric or something.
Yeah, that's a good two inches in length difference. Ugggh. Thank God I always cut some extra length to the bottom of skirts (and pants, but I rarely make those). This is shaping up to be a very... creative project.
At least my patch pockets look nice.
As does the trial run for the embroidery for Eowyn's starry mantle. :) (Did it on one of the million scraps from the skirt.)
Although I do need to practice some more, to get all the stitches closer together. Still, not bad for a first try!
