Finished skirt

I finally got some time to sit down and finish the Tulip Skirt from Stitch Magazine. Thanks to everyone who voted... I went with the blue buttons.
Overall a great pattern, but there were a few typos that made things difficult. For starters some of the front peices were actually the back.
I learned several things though...
- Buttonholes are hard to do on heavier fabric with my machine.
- How to use a twin needle.
- Pleats, while easy are not attractive in the back of skirts... really not attractive.

I hope to be able to wear this skirt, but there will have to be some minor alterations to the back so I don't look like I'm carrying around the biggest caboose on the west coast.

Well it looks nice on the hanger! I hope you can fix the back so you can feel comfortable wearing it. I have this mag too but haven't tried anything from it yet. I think the typos/errors are all corrected somewhere online (probably the publishers website). Mislabeling the back as front pieces is a major error!

Super cute skirt!! I've never been very good at butholes on any weight fabric.

Oh, I'm glad you went with the blue! And it looks very cute and comfortable.
