Update on the Floral Skirt and My Gimpy Daughter
I decided I like this skirt after all. I put a lettuce hem on it (using the rolled hem setting on my serger.) It actually looks rather good, and as I lose more weight, the length will automatically grow, as there will be less hip fluff to raise it up. Hehe. So today I’m wearing it to a client meeting today with my only decent black top I own (which, incidentally, looks to be a tad too big around the tummy, in these pics), other than a camisole.
I will make this skirt again, but next time, I think I’ll add more flare to the bottom of each panel, and add about one inch to the length. I sewed it almost entirely with the serger, except for the waistband, which I fastened down with a narrow zig-zag stitch.
After my meeting, I’m off to dinner with my mom, her roommate, and other friends at The Keg – otherwise known as “The Instantly Gain 50 Pounds Restaurant”. I’ll be having either a very small steak and steamed veggies only, or a salad with all the dressing on the side. Probably the latter because if they have a 6oz steak, I only need to cut it in half.
Here are some pictures my daughter took of me in my outfit, and some pictures I took of her with her crutches and ankle brace. She fell a couple nights ago and we were afraid she had broken her ankle, but thankfully, no. Just a very bad sprain. So, she’ll need these crutches for a couple days.
