mary jo's doesn't necessarily label their fabric fiber contents ---- yes, the cotton/quilting fabrics are 100% cotton, and ultrasuede is 100% synthetic, but this? they don't know. i assume it will shrink, so i take it home and wash and dry it before cutting out. this is a skirt pattern i've made many times before. when you find something that works, why change? it's a very simple bias skirt pattern --- one pattern piece, cut twice. sew the side seams, hem, sew the elastic to the top. finito!
what you end up with is a lovely ensemble ... but, i have to find a camisol to wear with. maybe i will be off to wally world later tonight to find some acceptable undergarment.
just in time for the changing season?! sometimes i'm a few steps behind, but i figure, better late than never.
