I'm almost finished with my skirt, all I have left to do is hem it, so I tried it on. I'm really happy with how it's turning out, and the waistband fits perfectly...perfectly! As you might have guessed that's not always guaranteed even on something I sew myself. So I'm very happy about that!
I tried it on with the brown boots I plan to wear with it and Colin said it looked very nice. I thanked him, and he proceeded to explain that he liked how the boots blended in with the skirt, and the shirt I was wearing looked nice too, but it would look even better if I wore a brown shirt, then I would match all over. "With the brown skirt, and the boots, and shirt, and your hair." Um...number one, I was not aware that my hair was the same color as the dark brown skirt. Second, I'm not going for a (feminine) UPS employee look. I'll wear all black, but not all brown...that's just too...brown. Although I guess there's not a whole lot of difference between all black and all brown.
So Colin approves of my new skirt and I'll post pictures of it when I get it completely done. :)
