I had been dreaming of this skirt for SO LONG!! Once I ordered my fabric it took a minute for me to muster up the courage to give this a try! I'm glad that I did!
Thanks to Mimi G and her amazing tutorials I've now sewn an Obi Belt, Elastic waistband Maxi Dress, a Pencil Skirt AND of course the Regal Maxi with Sash! I'm behind on posting the picks of the other items...sorry!
So without further ado...here's my beautiful skirt!
All in all this skirt was pretty easy to execute, my main struggle was the zipper sigh. It took me a little over an hour to figure out the invisible zipper! Oh how frustrating!!! I was damn near close to throwing the entire skirt in the trash!!
I composed myself, watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to install the zipper and kept on working! This was after I ripped the zipper seam out 3 times!!! So I ruined the zipper and it's now stuck at the seam on the waistband
Total time for completion: 14 hours over 2 days
I made a few mistakes but nothing I can't correct with the short version I plan to make for myself!! The interfacing I used for the waistband is way too heavy...duly noted.
Here's a very special thanks to my 7 year old Mimi for taking these pics!! They are a tad blurry (next time tripod) but she's dope!
