Silhouette Pattern #2913 Nick & Zoe's Skirt Black Denim

While looking for fabric to wash, I found a length of black stretch denim.  I am going to sew the skirt up in this first as a wearable practice muslin.  I have enough left over if something goes wrong.  Then. I'll be moving on to a blue denim version.  I also found a beautiful satin back black peachskin fabric that I think will look great for the holidays.

I wore the skirt to the store but I didn't take photos until the end of the day.  The reason the skirt is wrinkled.  The skirt was very comfortable and easy to wear.  I'll be sewing up more!

I finally repainted the thrift store lamps.  I thought a bright, shiny red would look nice.

I've been having trouble with my feet hurting while sewing.  I wasn't sure why but I caught myself arching my foot forward while I was sewing.  The pain is really bad if I'm not wearing shoes.  I now try to remember to wear shoes and be aware of what position my feet are in.  Who says sewing isn't rough on your health?
