side zipper creative space

This space hasn’t been very creative in the past week. I’ve been sick since last Saturday. I’ve spent a lot of time sleeping and not much else.

Right before that I had made a trip to the thrift store and started work on some summer refashioning. I also drafted a skirt pattern from scratch and made this muslin. Notice what’s on the side? A zipper! I’m not sure why I’m so intimidated by these buggers, but I’m going to conquer that fear this summer. So long elastic waistbands!

pattern: I used the a-line skirt formula in Sew What! Skirts. Muslin fabric is a floral sheet.

    I made my mom an apron from the same sheet! How funny is that! I got my sheet from a thrift store here in Florida.

  3. Yay! You put in a great looking zipper. I put a zipper in my very first sewing project right before Christmas – I was so chuffed! :) I love the fabric you have used for your muslin – Go vintage sheets! I wish there was an easy supply of them around here.
