Yesterday afternoon I traced off and modified the front and back pattern pieces as I discussed in the last post. Then I cut out another version of the skirt, this time in an embroidered camo cotton twill that I bought from JoAnn's a few years ago. DF will probably hate it, but he's old school Airborne/Special Forces. I'm not. I barely had enough for the skirt; these scraps are what's left:
And, as last time, I used a fun print for the pocket lining:
Although the blue isn't a perfect match, I think the vintage pinup girls somehow work well with the camo, don't you? My little secret anyway.
I also planned to install the lower pocket and flap as shown on the pattern envelope. However, I'm not loving the placement of the embroidery on the pocket piece, so I might need to re-think it. That's sewing for you!
Another quick project that's almost complete (or fully complete if I end up without the cargo pocket). I'll post a picture when it's done.
Then, onward to some Sewing Workshop sewing to get ready for the ASG Conference next month. My plans are somewhat ambitious, so we'll see how far I actually get!
