TGIFF - Cleo Skirt Finish

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, once again being hosted here on the East Coast of Canada.



Rae @ Made by Rae hosted a Cleo Skirt QAL earlier this month.  Unfortunately, I got sidetracked with life and didn't finish during the QAL.  Here is the fabric I started with.


I made a little mistake along the way -- accidentally sewed the waistband right side to the wrong side of the skirt.  Oops.


This is a simple pattern with lots of good directions.  There is elastic in the back of the waistband, but not the front.  It has two side pockets.


And voila...a finished skirt.


Here are a couple of photos of me wearing the skirt.





Now it's time for you to link up your finishes.  Link up your blog post showing off your finished project using the linkup below.  Don't forget to visit a few blogs to spread some quilty love and encouragement.  Please include a link and/or the TGIFF button in your blog post so your followers can also view all the great finishes.

  11. That looks great, Anja. I don't like fully elasticated waistbands, but a bit of elastic at the back like this is just right - it helps ensure a perfect fit but still looks smart.
