The color for this month is yellow and how serendipitous that I had a skirt planned in that color. I've had this fabric laying about for at least a couple of years. I love the wee flowers and the little nubs of texture, not to mention the fact that yellow is just such a happy color in general.
The original pattern just used a waist stay rather than an actual waistband, I wanted the latter so I created one. This brought up a whole new issue with the zipper I'd originally put in, as you can see.
At first I thought I could live with it, but the more I looked at it the more it bothered me, so I pulled out my seam ripper and undid the waistband about four inches on either end, removed the zip and replaced it with an invisible zip. My first one ever.
