I decided to make the "one-hour skirt" from Brett Bara's book "Sewing in a Straight Line" for my first project in my sewing class that I took at Sarah's Fabrics. It was definitely NOT a one-hour skirt for my beginner sewing skills, however, I am really pleased with how it turned out! I will take some photos of me wearing it, eventually. Brett Bara's book is really great.. it focuses on all things sew-able using straight lines. Clever. I really enjoy her blog as well.. go here.
