when you make plans

life gets in the way, right?

I had every intention of finishing this last night.  I mean I put dinner in the crockpot in the morning, so I had nothing to do.  But it didn't happen.

I lighted the bad photos so hopefully you can see a bit better.  This is the cord skirt - it's unfinished.  I decided after all that work to baste the side seams and make sure it fit before finishing.  And it does.

I still need to find a nice cotton for the yoke facings and I think I'll use the same for hem facing.  I need to decide on a hem length and have JB take photos so the flooring (yet to but put in the workout room - and where Lou and mirror live) isn't pusing the side seams in.

As you can see the side seams hand straigh and in the middle of me.  I have a little pouch in the front belly region, but I'm happy. 

Is that side seam going forward right at the bottom?  Should I worry about it?  Am I seeing things?  walking away now...


  1. I see what you are seeing in the side seam, but I'm not sure that it's just not the angle of the camera. Let your arms hang straight down and then follow them (with your eyes) down the seam - that should give you a fairly fair assumption of how it looks.

  2. Whistling...

    You know I'm no help at all.

  3. It looks good to me. I think Lynn might be right about the camera angle.

  4. I don't think it's pulling, I think it's just the shot.

    This is looking really great, btw!

  5. Basting is good, and the skirt looks great!

  6. It's looking good! There's no rush you know...when you get to it you will. But at least you've worked out all of the challenges and you will be able to make it again!

  7. I'm impressed. Are you looking for problems? I see nothing amiss, but then, I see nothing!

  8. Very nice! I think it looks super! BRAVA!!!

  9. It looks great! Your efforts have paid off. I agree that the side seam being off is likely camera angle. That's a nice color, too; can't wait to see your facing fabric choice.

  10. I don't know where my days go either - LOL Love crock pot cooking ~ reminds me I haven't made chili in far too long.

    The skirt looks great ~ not sure what you are trying to decide (must learn to sew some day)!


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
