OWOP Day 2
The skirt is a pinwale corduroy plaid, with a grid of small flowers laid over the plaid. I cut it on the bias to make version 3 of the Ginger. Had some adventures there! At first, the pattern was mismatched on the center front seam. I was able to match it properly by taking about an inch out of that seam, then using tiny seam allowances on the sides.
This skirt actually needs some more work. I somehow managed to sew the top of the zipper to the inside of the waistband (yeah, I wore it held together with just safety pin). And the zipper is fubar. I'll be using Sunni's tutorial to reinsert it properly.
I love how OWOP is encouraging me to actually wear some of my jewelry! This necklace is a vintage glass number full of what I think are oranges, orange blossoms, and leaves.
