Do you know how sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees? I kept complaining about the pockets on my green skirt and didn’t think to remove them. Haha! Thanks to all the numerous commenters who suggested the obvious to me.
After my hatchet job, I sewed up the pocket openings. Then I tried it on to see if a miracle had happened.
Nope. No miracle. I still don’t like my skirt. There was a little ease, I think, at the pocket openings (or they stretched out in construction, but I don’t really think so since I used silk organza to stabilize them), so there is some puckering after I sewed them up. And that seam at the belly is most unattractive.
So, sigh… No green skirt for me for now.
But there is some good news: I just might have enough of the fabric left over to make a different skirt. 🙂
