New Project: OOP Butterick 3201
This pattern is circa 2001 but I just love the shape, a narrow A-line. I've made it a couple of times before, so I've got the fitting issues worked out.
This time, I'm making it from a lightweight wool challis that I bought from FabricMart last year, so the fabric is practically new!
I plan on lining the skirt for comfort and convenience, and there might be some additional changes as well. The pattern features a faced contour waist with a drawstring. That's a little more casual look than I want for this fabric, so I'll either apply the facing sans drawstring or bind the edge with a bias strip of the fabric.
I also need to search out my invisible zipper feet. For the first time in a while, I'm actually making something that calls for a zipper and the invisible type is the simplest one for me. It just so happens that the newest Palmer/Pletsch "Fit for Real People" has instructions for an invisible zip, so I'll add that to the information I refer to when installing.
