Additionally, Joann had Simplicity patterns on sale for 5 for $5 and because Joann and G Street are in the same shopping center, I hit them up too (ok, even if Joann was not in the same shopping center, I still would've gone).
I made Simplicity 1690:
I used French seams and used the border to bind the edges of the zipper. I like how it looks:
Additionally, because I like to make things harder for myself, I didn't fuse interfacing to the waistband because in the beginning I suspected it was going to be too small and thought the interfacing would make it worse. Once I made it too big, I realized I really needed the interfacing so I actually fused it after the last fix, meaning after I sewed everything back in place. I don't recommend doing this...it was not fun.
Anyway, after all my troubles I think I'm mostly happy with it though I'm not sure I like the fabric anymore...lol. I will still wear it though once it warms up again.
I should've purchased more than one voucher...
I wore the skirt to work today!:
