Another Skirt

Really, I couldn't help myself. I've been wearing skirts all week and I'm tiring of the ones in my stash. You know, I can only wear the new skirt for so many days until I start running into the same people. Actually, I've only worn it twice, but have run into two of the same people. I want to wear it more. It's comfy and roomy. So, I decided to make another one so I could switch them out.

This one is made from some vintage cotton fabric. It's the same style as before ("Breezy Beach Wrap" from Sew What! Skirts). Very quick and easy.


And I think the stitch in the ditch is improving. It's not actually the technique that I am having trouble with, it's the catching the back of the waistband in the stitch in the ditch (from the front) that is causing me some problems. That waistband is not being cooperative.

I must warn you: There will be more ...

Stitch in the ditch? I don't even know what that is. My sewing vocab is pretty basic.

I've been seeing your skirts, and I have that book. But tell me, how does that 5" strip of fabric that overlaps in the back actually cover the rear? I've never liked wrap skirts before because the ones I've had wrapped in front and always gapped open. But this is different. And I was thinking that if you lined it you could have TWO skirts in one. But I can't get past being scared my bum will end up hanging out (most likely at work). lol THANKS!!
