Easy enough and cozy warm with a pair of wool stockings.
Then I decided to give my reversible skirt idea another try. I'd made one a few years ago and though I love the skirt the closure was always a problem as I used a wimpy little ribbon laced through buttonholes. This time I made loops and buttons on both sides and it works just fine.
and a peak at side two:
I'm not sure I'm going to stick with those buttons on side two. It's a plain linen scrap and I thought I'd add some color to with those buttons. I've also left the hem on the linen side as a fringe. I may change this as well. The aloha toile side has buttons as well. They all match.
Then I found an old curtain and sewed up another one!
And the perfect buttons found in my button basket!
I think I'm through with zippers altogether. This button and loop deal take care of the zipper and waist band and lining issue all in one go.
I think I've got enough skirts for now.
