It was a lovely evening with very funny women, enjoying an evening without the kids.
We all chose different fabrics, and the skirts were easy to make, and fitted perfect.

|This is looking good !|
|all the little owls are watching me....|
I chose a Japanses design by Kokka, and the print is all little owls. I don't know what statement I am making here. An owl is the symbol of both wisdom and stupidity in my culture. My pupils will not be offended I hope...

|measuring, choosing, cutting, everything went pico bello|
I know how to make a skirt, I learned that a long time ago, in evening classes, during the 80-ies. (yes, I'm that old... )
Back then, the way they made things was very comprehensive, 'as a dressmaker would do it'. The correct and meticulous way. Over the years, I have discovered many other ways to do stuff. Easier, simpler and faster, with the same result. And much more satisfying too !
But I had never seen this way to insert a zipper. It's the Pritt-way.... And you know what ? It works !
|Glue keeps the zipper in place, before you stich|
A last fit, and we could finish the skirt.
