This skirt is so easy. A four row pattern with edge increases and decreases to make a rectangle on the bias. I have gone with quite a lot of negative ease on this, so it will stretch considerably over my widest bits but not be too bulky at the waist. When it’s done, I intend to wear it with black leggings underneath. I really hope it looks okay – okay enough that I’m actually willing to leave the house wearing it!
Once the rectangle is finished, which will be pretty soon, I have to seam it and add some waist ribbing. Getting elastic will be easy as the store I now work at sells it.
This week at work, I have to wear a fetching red T shirt advertising the new membership plan, so I won’t be wearing the skirt with that! But hopefully that’s only for a week or so.
In other news, I have just finished watching all of the episodes that I could find on You Tube of Ally McBeal. I blubbed all over the last one. But some episodes were missing, most importantly the two I was most hoping to see – the ones with Josh Groban in them. Sigh!
While wondering what I was going to watch next, the old British TV series The Survivors came to mind. This is a show that I can still recall, even though it was back in 1975! Every now and then, a scene will pop into my mind. So I was curious, and guess what! I found it on You Tube. I just watched the first episode.
It’s a bit ‘doom and gloom’ as it opens when a virus is spreading rapidly around the world and people are dropping like flies. But I will be interested to see how much of it I remember.
Work again tomorrow, 1 to 9pm this time. I’ll be setting up the slowcooker in the morning. Have a great Friday.
