So, today I had the day off work and I spent the day sewing. I made me a Ginger.
Actually, its not a complete Ginger, as it is sans the waistband. To be fair I didn't want the hassle of the waistband after the failed attempt on my last Ginger and as such I decided to omit it. Because I can. Wow, you gotta love sewing up your own clothes where its fine to make an 'executive decision'. I used grosgrain ribbon to stabilise and shape the waist instead, and I must say I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Gonna share some pictures of the construction. I am so pleased with this skirt, its fits and is not too big, the length is perfect and I totally love the inside as much as the outside.

|Super neat - inside and out|

I used the serger and played around with the tension until I got it perfect and I am so pleased with the end result. It was fun to use too !
Mr P took a couple of snaps of me in it - unfortunately we didnt get around to snapping the V8380. Another time maybe :-)
|I know - awful snap right ?|
|Choo Choo !!|
Check out the happy face of the station master..... He was so happy - even in the rain !
So, back to work for me tomorrow. I am working in the Court and will wear my new Ginger. It almost makes me feel excited about going to work - the excitement of wearing a new skirt !
Now to think of what to make next :-) I think I may try the Sencha - I have a muslin cut out already - just need to sew it all together.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far,
