Do you upgrade your staples as your skills improve? What should I do with these old skirts? It seems like a waste to throw them out but they're really, really not very well made. (Oh, my God, the zippers!)
These are the first two skirts that I made:
Wow, what is up with those front darts?
Yikes, what a mess!
At the time that I made these, I was so happy with them! Now I see how much better I can do, I'm retiring them. You may notice that the first two skirts that I've made with the self drafted pattern (below) are like upgrades of the old skirts: basic grey and a dark purplishmaroon. They're real wardrobe staples for me!
Also of note: In the last couple of months I've spent $70 on a houndstooth marino wool sweater, $70 on materials for my most recent skirt and $80 on a new bikini (I'm going to Hawaii!!!!)
