The pattern is Simplicity 2226. Fabric is Kasbah from Lark by Amy Butler. One of my all time favorite prints. In fact, my phone has a skin on it that matches (can be seen in the Instagram photo in my previous post).
It was a really easy make. It took about 4 total hours including tracing the pattern on freezer paper and cutting. Coming so soon after the pride I had making a pretty successful muslin of Simplicity 1879, I decided to just go for it and not make a muslin for this one. I was too excited!
I should have taken Anna's advice from the sew along she hosted to at least make a practice waist band. But I didn't. And now my skirt is too big! Oops.
So here's my question, having never done this before. How exactly do I take it in? Do I need to take the whole skirt apart? I was thinking maybe I could just somehow take in the waist bands at the side seams and not fiddle with the rest of the skirt, since it's gathered. But I really don't have a clue! Such a newbie question, I know. :)
