The Simple Skirt….

September 18, 2008
This was MUCH easier than the dress. And it fits like a glove. A beautiful, constricting, turn your fingers blue kind of glove.
When those designers in 1947 said 30 inch waist, they meant it. And they meant for you to cinch that waist in a tight fitting girdle (Spanx high waisted power panties, in 2008) so you could zip the zipper and close those hooks and eyes! Holy Moly!
I have a crinoline coming in the mail to wear under it.
I love it.
Sometimes the pain is worth it.
Here is the pattern: Advance 4759
  1. You will adore your skirt with a crinoline! Just gives it that little perfect pouf! I am sorry you won’t be able to take your skirt out to dinner! LOL Looks great!
