My mom made us clothes when we were little, especially pajamas and special occasion clothes. She was a very accurate sewer. Even though I've quilted for a long time now, I was always afraid to try to make my own clothes. So I recently purchased a skirt kit and went to work. I really learned so much in making this skirt. It was Simplicity Pattern 2226. I traced the pattern, made a muslin of the waistband for fit, made pockets, used french seams, put in an invisible zipper, and did a blind hem. I was helped by this great five day sew along from Anna at Noodlehead. I still feel like making clothes is a lot harder than making quilts, but I do feel confident now to keep branching into the garment side of sewing.
