I’ve been sitting here for half an episode of New Girl trying to think of something brilliant and witty to say about Simplicity 2451.
Is it possible for a pattern to be so good that you can’t rhapsodize about it?
I think so. Because I have no words.
. . .
And there went the other half of the New Girl episode (it’s the one where Jess tries in vain to have a one night stand).
I did take in the yoke and skirt side seams (just at the pocket–that rather brilliant pocket–actually the pocket is less brilliant than the Moss pockets because I can’t comfortably get my hands all the way in). I love how it fits at my waist and looks pretty great with tucked in tops.
Here’s the thing, though. I don’t know that I’ll make this skirt again. If I want another straight skirt, I’ll probably stick with my faithful Moss. I’m not really a fan of the other versions of the pattern.
Also, since I’m binge-watching New Girl, I’ve decided a need a red Lady Skater.
Oh, right–I did an exposed zipper. It would have been smart to actually look up a tutorial. I didn’t do that. I did my own thing. Which might be a little wrong. Whatevs! It’s works. And–hurray!–my zipper locks. I wasn’t aware it had this feature, but I see now that it is a very good feature to have. Also, I was a bit worried that it would be a little too “watch me walk away” which is probably not the best idea when you work with children.
And then I got over that.
There is something weird happening in the zipper area. It doesn’t lie quite right back there. I think maybe the zipper ends at a weird part of the curve.
Guys. GUYS. Let’s play True American. Who’s in?? I have to change my skirt first.
