I decided to use the Delphine skirt pattern from the book Love at First Stitch by Tilly and the Buttons.
|I love my Janome, y'all!|
Here it was after seaming the sides and now trying to attach the waist band. I used a cheap craft cotton fabric from Michael's because this was technically the toile (like a "first draft").
|Did so many things for the first time for this skirt, such as using an interfacing.|
|My finished Delphine...weeeee!|
(For those of you who've been sewing for awhile, don't laugh! :P)
I tucked in my top so you can see the fit on me.
You bet I wore it while out and about even though it's a toile because...well, I just made a skirt!

Being a beginner, I've been devouring all the sewing books I can get my hands on, and these are my fave:)
2) Diana Rupp's Sew Everything Workshop
3) Reader's Digest New Complete Guide to Sewing (This is the library copy, but I'll be buying my own copy soon.)
4) The Sewing Book (not pictured) is a good reference book as well.
I found a super nice sewing teacher who does private lessons, so fingers crossed I can set up an appointment with her soon and learn in a more hands-on way.
Do any of you sew? I'm kinda in love with it now. Knitting and sewing...what more can a girl want?
Speaking of knitting, this is the latest thing I've knitted: a school vest for my daughter:)
