My First Skirt
I just wanted to make a simple gathered skirt. But I couldn't resist the idea of making one with ruffles. So I ended up spending the entire day making this skirt. This also gave me the chance to learn more about the sewing machine we have at home. I learned how to change the tension, as well as use additional stitches so that I could make the underside of the skirt look better.
Making a gathered skirt would have been simple. But details like ruffles make it trickier. I think that I will enjoy making a couple more of skirts for myself as experiment. Hopefully next time, I'd be brave enough to try making drawstring pants XD
