I walked to Modern Domestic to get the Moneta pattern not Wonder Tape, now that I think about it. While there I was overcome and bought not just the Monea pattern, but also the Mabel pattern and a yard of material to make me a skirt. My solemn vow to only have one project at a time on hand seems to have gone by the wayside and I’ve driven to another state.
Tracing the pattern, using my handy “pattern weights” aka cans of food.
Cutting the waistband.
Cutting out the skirt. My sewing scissors are incredibly dull and I ended up getting out my rotary cutter and 12″x 12″ cutting mat, which made for some tough repositioning.

This looks like it will be a perfect summer/early fall/late spring skirt! Can't wait to see it finished.
Mabel – now there's a name you don't hear anymore. That looks fairly similar to the skirt I made in my sewing class. It's very cute! I'm sure it'll look great on you.
