Simplicity 2588: Part 3....

So now I'm at the skirt stage and all is still going well....



Pleats in and pockets! 

Time to stick the two pieces together.....


And OMG to my upper amazement it all matched up!

Then this part happened.....adding a dreaded zip.....without a zipper foot...

The pinning in was fine...


The sewing part was little traumatic. The thread just kept snapping even though I was taking my time and changing the tension...it must have been because of the foot...right???


But I did manage to get it in, and because this is my first ever dress I'm not too worried about a few extra stitch lines...it adds to the charm :)

So now it just needs a quick iron and we'll see how it looks.....
