Lesson #4 Sewing Our Skirt! Part 2

Hi Darlings! 

You guys are the best first of all! go SEE why

Below is part #2 of lesson 4: Sewing Our Skirt and we are attaching our zipper, sewing our lining and test fitting! Sorry for the short post today dolls but I am headed to get boxes to start packing because we move in two days and I have not packed a thing, LOL

Make sure to post progress pics on our FLICKR GROUP and REMEMBER sewing is fun not stressful so if you make a mistake or it's not turning out perfect IT'S OK, you are learning and trust me when I first started I was in the same place you are now so just enjoy the learning process and practice, you have already succeeded because you are TRYING and that is half the battle ;-)


  1. Hey Mimi! Thank you so much for the words of encouragement :) Strangely I have this idea that everything is suppose to be perfect starting out ... and it aint

  2. Ok. So I'm an advanced sewer (I thought) and I just watched your video. I've made that butterick skirt several times for others. Let me just say I LOVE the way you put in the invisible zipper. Baste it to the seam allowance? Who knew! I've been doing it the Coat's & Clark way all these years. Damn them. Thanks Mimi!! Newbies (welcome) and listen up - she'zzz gooood!! :-)

  3. Thanks Mimi. Directions that I have read for inserting an invisible zipper have always been so convoluted. Your way is so simple.. What type of fabric is your skirt? The colors is beautiful.


Thank you for taking time to comment ;-)
