I'm still working on my two Carnival of Skirts submissions. The black faux leather and crepe skirt is still in its holding pattern because I want to figure out the most-attractive way to attach the lining and facing to the zipper closing.
I fixed my construction error on the stone herringbone skirt, attached the lining/facing to the zipper and added double-welt pockets to the skirt front. All that remains is hemming the skirt and lining.
Last evening, I cut out and began constructing Vogue 1329.
I'm using a black and white ponte knit I bought from JoAnn's a couple of weeks ago. I have the dress constructed and invisible zipper sewn in, and I still have to cut out and construct the lining.
My plan is to wear this, along with Vogue 8884, View C, in a lemon yellow poplin on Sunday for Easter. I have my 3-year old black spring coat already waiting in the wings just in case.
