(wearing my birthday present necklace - thanks Marce!)
The right front is a size 34 and the left is a size 26. I wanted the underlap to cover my entire body when I sat down. It spreads a little too much on the longer version. But since the longer version has extra fabric it covers me when I sit down.
For this one, the length is just under my knees. I added one inch to the hemline of the pattern to lengthen it. I also made the ties differently than the pattern instructions.
As I stated in the last post, the ties were a b*tch to turn. So for these ties, I pressed the seam allowance flat. For the end of the tie, I pressed it down in both directions, then cut diagonally across to remove the excess fabric, so the tie end would lay flat. Besides the length it's the only change I made. Then I stitched the tie flat all the way around before following the pattern instructions to attach it to the skirt.
The fabric for this make is a denim looking fabric I purchased from Fabric Mart's brick and mortar store during Sew Camp in March 2017. As an aside this is the third piece I've used from that purchase.

Originally I was going to wear this with the Montrose Top but the two pieces just didn't work well together. So I went with plan B. I wore it my white TNT sleeveless shirt. I know it's basically the same look as the longer skirt but hey if it ain't broke why fix it.
This is my favorite of the two skirts probably because I used a lighter weight fabric and the shorter length. I also like the way it wraps better.
I won't be using this pattern again this season. Too many other things to sew and fabric to use.
...as always more later!
