UFO #1-Done

I finish one of my UFOs. I started this pencil skirt at the beginning of this month and stopped with just the hem to finish. Some how I ended up with 3 skirts in the closet that just needed to be hemmed. I guess I just like to have a little hand sewing to do while watching TV. Now I've got 2 more skirts hems left. I don't want to start the new year with any UFOs.

Here's my version in chocolate brown with a pink RTW jacket.

Happy Holidays,
You look great in your skirt and jacket. I will look for that pattern and see how it fits. Thank you for visiting my blog HomeMadeLove Designs. It's still in it's early stages, but I look forward to sharing my love of sewing and fashion.
I tried to email you a reply about the computer patternmaking program, but I don't think it went threw.

If you have any questions you can email me at sewlove@hotmail.com. The program is easy to use, but it has a learning curve to it. Once you have the correct measurments it will print patterns that fit you. Oh, I almost forgot, they have a demo you can try. Let me know what you think.

The skirt is fabulous! I really love that color combination and it really works for you! I have this pattern and have only made a dress that's been relegated to a nightgown! Need to give this one a second look!

Great outfit. It's so satisfying when you turn a UFO into a stylish wearable garment.
