New Look 6228 - Knit Pencil Skirt

Pattern Info:

My first venture back into sewing for myself will be this cute pencil skirt. I have seen showcased on a few boards that I lurked and knew I had to make it. The sizes range from 4 to 16 so with these awesome curves I am blessed with I graded it between size 16 and 18. I knew I wasn't going to be able to sew today so I am hand basting the skirt while I multitask. Such a ugly word when you are trying to get in the zone, lol.  Because I will need to work on a fall wardrobe it only fitting to have classic pieces. 
Material Selection:
I will be sewing View C in black and View A in blue. Both will be in ponte knit and hopefully before I start on the blue one I will be able to find some stretch piping. As of now it is eluding me in my surrounding area so I might have to order it online, will see. The views call for 7/8 and 1 yard of 60" material so you can make quite a few to enhance your wardrobe. I already can tell this pattern will get utilize alot too.

This is the my newest endeavor where I will showcase where my creative flows and what becomes of it. I would like to thank everyone who blogs I have lurked over the last few months to encourage me to get back in to sewing and knitting for myself and others. Oh yes, sometimes I sew for others but I have one particular fashion doll that I have started sewing for again. She is a demanding client too, so she helps me remember all things you first learn when you sew and you know we have all been there!

I would place my sewing and knitting skills at intermediate. Once I master my tailoring skills in sewing then I will say expert. One of my goals is to make my son a custom suit and I want it to be absolutely perfect. So yeah, I need to step up my A game and I will.  As for my …
