Again used the same simplicity pattern again. I am a whiz at this pattern!
Here is my cut chiffon and a cream colored satin-like material for the liner. I cut the panels only for the skirt, I left the yoke with the pink chiffon. Since I used white interfacing it was close enough in color. I didn't need to add the lining with the interfacing.
I did the pattern like normal. I sewed the lining separate from the chiffon. I attached them together while sewing to band.
I serged off the excess material of course! I love my serger!
I also sewed the sides too. I don't know if this was the smartest step b/c I had issues with zipper. LOL! Also I realized I could not overlap the waist.
I used a regular zipper (not an invisible one). Here's an interesting fact about myself I can put in an invisible zipper with my eyes closed and instantly. I can not do a regular zipper, this took a long time. Probably longer than what it took for me sew the skirt together. Stupid.
But I made it work and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how the skirt turned out. The lining was great. It sits at the right spot. The length is perfect. OMG it is just perfect
I consider this a win for me! I can't wait to wear it, I tried to pair it with a sweater in hopes I could wear it soon to work.
