the scoop on the skirtWednesday, December 03, 2008
Back to the skirt.
These are not the best photos. They were taken last Tuesday, through the window, by my mother. It was 28˙ outside, and was just starting to snow. I wasn't about to make her come join in the fun. I also had the camera on the wrong setting. Whoops.
There are a couple of things that I don't like about how this turned out. See how the skirt separates and sort of comes to a V at the bottom. That bugs me. It has been blocked, and steamed, and continues to do that. My mother and a good friend think that I am being a bit picky, but I like my knits to turn out like the photo in the pattern. Also, the waistband must have elastic sewn into it, otherwise it would end up down around your hips all day. Not a good look.
Yes, a little clingy in the rear. I know, I should have expected this from a knit skirt.
