Planning My First Project

My first project will be a black a-line skirt. I’ve practically lived in my current one for longer than I’d like to admit, and it seems like a simple project too. I’ve found a free pattern for one here and it has an elastic waistband, so it looks like a perfect simple beginner’s project.

I bought my fabric, a mystery black synthetic (probably polyester, but I don’t know how to tell for sure) with a bit of lycra in it, so that it has just enough stretch to it to be easy to move in and practical. I have some elastic, have printed out my pattern and am ready to get started.

This is going to be a bit of an adventure for me. It’s the first time that I’ve ever made anything from a pattern that I haven’t drafted myself. But it’s an a-line skirt and my waist measurement is exactly that of the one on the pattern’s sizing chart, so I’m pretty certain (or at least hopeful) that it will be just fine.
