New Look 6969

A few weeks ago, before the winter 'thaw' and the advent of truly spring-like Michigan weather, I had the urge to sew up something fresh and cute. Using view D below, with some stretch cotton sateen from my stash, I stitched up the little number below using NewLook 6969:



Since this skirt is unlined, it took me no time at all. And, although it doesn't look like it in the photo, the hem IS even.....must be that 'model pose'! I actually prefer to wear dresses and skirts, especially in the warmer months, so I signed on for the "No Pants Challenge" over at Hideous!Dreadful!Stinky! to make four pieces over the 4 weeks before summer officially starts: May 23 - June 17, 2011. Trust me when I say I have the patterns and the stash fabric to make this happen :-)!
