See Frayed Nerves & a Tweed Skirt
No Review, just pictures (Thanks, Roz for the pics)....
This is my TNT (Tried N True) Elastic Waist Skirt Pattern from Vogue 8541. This is the fourth time that I used this pattern to make a skirt.
I cut the 16, but with frayed edges - I interfaced way, way after I cut (I know, brilliant!) - it's probably closer to a 12 or 14. The fit is pretty good (before I lost weight - I could barely get it over my hips), with the exception of a little extra in the back - I could probably fix that with two small darts. Right now, I'm just happy that the skirt is finished and, in time for New Years Eve! Oh, yeah!

* Interfacing: ha-ha! and, I ironed all of the strips of interfacing on right the first time. No, interfacing on the iron plate. Major win!
* Interlining: not sure if I did it all the way right, but it works. And, I'm so glad I added a thick poly tricot for the interlining, since the temp dropped 20 degrees today while I was at work. I wish I could find a very easy Vogue pattern that calls for an interlining - after I follow a thousand steps to do it the long way, I'll get the best way to approach it. I do know that I need to leave about 2 or 3 inches at the bottom loose. For ease in hemming. Live & Learn! (I say that way too often.)
