Call me crazy. I am crazy. I'm insane. Sometimes I swear I am a complete and utter lunatic. I took my photos this morning and posted about my skirt (see below). I even posted on Wardrobe Refashion. I kept looking at the photos. I wasn't happy. My skirt looked somehow unsatisfactory. The original Celine skirt has a waistband. I knew this. I made a conscious decision when I made my skirt that I wouldn't have a waistband. I didn't want to do a complete knock-off, for heaven's sake. But my skirt looked ... wrong.
So I attacked it. I know! Crazy! After finishing up in the office, I took up the unpicker and removed the facings from the skirt. By some miracle there was just enough of the port wine linen left to make a waistband. Ironed on the interfacing. Took in the waist darts front and back to bring the top up to waist level. Attached the waistband, sewed a buttonhole, and added an old button. You know what? It looks so much better now. Celine's Phoebe Philo was right. The waistband was necessary.
(This photo was taken about seven hours after this morning's photo. Crazy woman!)
Details: same as this morning!!!
