I knit a sweater, ya’ll! Over the summer, my (future) sister-in-law and I agreed to knit our first sweaters at the same time. Becky has been knitting much longer than I have, and she’s the one who originally taught me how to knit, so I felt honored to be able to help her push her knitting boundaries a little bit.
In the second installment of my quest for the perfect pencil skirt, I’ve gone back to a classic. This is the wiggle skirt from the Two-in-One Skirt Collection by Simple Sews. I’ve made this pattern up twice before: a floral stretch cotton sateen version in May 2015, and a goldenrod version out of upholstery fabric in October 2015. The floral version is still in my closet, but I broke the zipper on the second version an decided that it wasn’t worth fixing. Both of these skirts are fine, but the fit wasn’t perfect so I wanted to see if I could improve on it.
