The "Hold the Buttons" Sencha

    The Facts
    Fabric | Red, dotty rayon challis from, where else, Fabric.com. It was $1.95 a yard and I had a TON of it, lol. Some was wasted on a failure and for this skirt. I think I might be able to squeeze one more thing out of the remnants.
    Patterns | Colette Patterns, Sencha. This is my second, it's modified even more than the first.
    Year | Current
    Notions | Thread and a zipper. There's a bit of iron on interfacing at the center back to support the zipper.
    Time to complete | ​I've had major insomnia lately (anxiety over school, cataloging and classification SUCK) so I was, literally, up all night sewing this. The fabric, and my desire to get cleaner results, made me take my time. I stopped, with just the zipper and neckline to go, when the sun came up and finished the next (last) night.
    First worn | To take the kiddies to school. On the way home, I posed for some timer shots, ALONE, in a semi populated area!! This is HUGE for me. I only felt a little awkward. Check out the pic of me laughing when an older gentleman, probably a professor, stopped to say "looking good" and that I "chose a great model" lol
    Wear again? | Yes. It is so slinky and comfy. Hubby and the kiddies like it, too. I really, really love working with challis. I've loaded up my cart with some cool selections for future projects.
    Total price | A couple bucks for the fabric is really all.
