Sewing Some Simple A-line Skirts With Zippers

24 Aug

I bought all the fabric I used SO long ago, and this summer all these skirts have been in heavy rotation.

I used an out of print pattern: Burda 8879. My friend had already cut it out, so I had to trace and modify it to my own measurements. Once I got that down, I was able to sew them up quickly.

Now I’ve been loosing some weight, so I need to rip the seams and take them in a few inches. That will involve reinstalling the  side zipper, but I’ll do it (happily) one day while I watch a movie or something.
