Another skirt

I made another skirt, using one of the African fabric panels mentioned in my last post. I used an elastic waist technique from the Spring issue of Sew Stylish. I liked it better (on this skirt) than the exposed elastic, but think will use multiple channels as shown on an Anna Marie Horner pattern. Also cut out a muslin today for a more work appropriate A-line skirt. And have plans to cut out a couple of "wearable muslin" items...And I also washed up a bunch of fabric this morning...Will have to go out later today in our unbearable heat to go get a mammogram and a dexo screening...ah, the joys of being female and almost 50....Well, here are pics of the skirt, it's comfortable and cool, so plan on wearing it lots and making up a couple more!!!
