I will be forever grateful to Kathrin of Annekata for showing me how to put in a zip. Here is my first ever garment with a zip. Wow. I am proud of myself. No really, I am! A skirt, with gathers nogal (a South Africanism, which kind of means " Who would have thought?")
Now how is this for a masterpiece of invisibility?
Now I must just learn how to do a waistband, that ... er ... matches up.
