Well, 1930s skirt is done, made from a rayon/linen blend woven. Similar to a gabardine but with a softer hand and drape.
It has a really deep hem fold since I needed to shorten it a tad from its intended length.
Still, it's within a historically accurate range, in regard to 1930s hemlines ;-p
But, since it has such a deep fold, it shows a bit from the underside after pressing.
I may try to fix it, I have a few options.
Looks great on though.

I really like that. I love the way you take the time to add 'curvage', You are quite the seamstress, but you know this right?

It's lovely! What do you plan to wear with it?
Do you have any shows coming up? Make sure to take some pics of any new costumes, ok? I love seeing them.
I signed up for a sewing class at college later this month. It's high time~ for me to get off my ass and actually make something that is 'not' made by hand. I am sick of hand sewing. Maybe in about 300 years, I will catch up to you:)
I recently got a book from Goodwill called "Couture" by Ruth Lynam. Do you know of this book or have it? I think it would make a great addition to your sewing book collection if not. It is exquisite. I also got a cool book I want to post to Roccoco but since I am a moron, I still have to figure how? to post the pic of it! I will try at work perhaps. Nice that you are back. m
