All In the Details

So I promise that I will soon post about something other than the same ol' boring skirt!  (The truth is that I finally got home today, so now I finally can start working on something else!)  I did want to share a few pictures of my favorite parts of this skirt.  It's the small details that make my little sewing heart beam with pride!  And without many more words...

Button!  Thank Goodness for my Buttonhole foot!
P.S.  If you look closely, you can NOT see where I used
stitch in the ditch to sew the waistband !!
Tricksy, I know.

My first fully lined skirt!

Hand picked zipper.  You can sort of see
the inside part of the picked zipper. 
You can tell from the previous two photos,
that the pick stitches on the outside are
Thank-you Tasia for introducing me to this
wonderful technique!
Fresh flowers on my table.  Also a small detail
that makes me smile.


  1. What a gorgeous skirt! I absolutely love houndstooth prints. Well done on all the little details - your zip and lining look fabulous!

    I'm so glad you commented on Debi's guest post on my blog today. Welcome to the sewing community! I look forward to following your blog! :)

  2. Thank-you so much! I am so enjoying it! It is such a joy to be able to share with others the things that make me giddy! I really enjoyed your post and can't wait to read more as well!

  3. No way this is a 'plain old boring skirt'. Looks like you have done a brilliant job on it, particularly the lining - and love the flowers, too!!!

  4. Thank-you so much! I was so pleased with how the lining turned out. I was kind of flying by the seat of my pants, because there were no instructions for the lining. It turned out better than I imagined! Thank-you for your find comments, and thank-you for stopping by my lil' blog :) Hope to see you back.
