Haven’t seen too many solid coloured items from Funnygrrl, have you? Take a look at the finished items on the left. I love colour and print! I don’t own a solid black skirt. Seriously. Until now!
It’s the elastic-waist skirt that I have made numerous times. This time in a solid black. The fabric was a satin with shine but I used the dull side. I knew this would be my go-to for work and running errands. I didn’t need the shine. It’s hemmed with my favorite rolled hem, done on my serger.
I know it isn’t very exciting but it is a basic that will be worn. Now if I could just stitch up a pair of black trousers…
Do you sew the basics? Which do you get more satisfaction from?
