Hello there !
I found the very first item I ever made the other day - it was a denim dress.
The bodice did not fit at all, but the skirt part fits like a dream and I have wanted a dark denim pencil skirt for some time. As such I decided to ditch the bodice and keep the skirt. So out came the trusty old seam ripper and I separated the 2 halves.
Now I have the problem that I want to add a waistband and a zipper to make the skirt a proper skirt. I don't want facings or bias binding - I want a real waistband. I cant trace a waistband from the original pattern as I have lost it - oops.
Does anyone know any good tutorials for creating a waistband or have any tips to draft one and attach it ? I would be eternally grateful !
Its not beyond the realm of imagination that I could have 2, yes 2! finished garments tomorrow (waistband permitting).
In other news it's only flipping Friday ! I hope you all have a good one,
