Earlier this week, I had a post at imagine gnats about a Megan Nielsen Kelly skirt. Look how poofy it can get when it’s windy! :D:D

I really had to bonk myself on the head — the side of the waistband that I started topstitching out came out much nicer than the side I ended on. I planned to put in my buttonholes so that the nicer side of the waistband ended up on the top… but then I took a break from sewing and I forgot! I only remembered after I’d sewn all the buttonholes on the side that the instruction say to, and then I was too lazy to unpick them. doh!

In other interwebby things, last week, Sara at Sew Sweetness released her Tortoise Bag, which I got to test.

It’s a cute little bag! The next time, I’d try to use a two-way zipper instead of two one-way zippers, though… maybe I could trim down the the tape or find one with very flexible tape.
