Friday night sew-in

Yay! My plans for tonight fell through (can I tell you how excited I am by that?) - which means I get to participate in the Friday night sew-in! Awesome!

Even though what I really want to sew is a sheath dress, I feel the need to be responsible and finish one of my eight pending projects. I think the purple pencil skirt will be the candidate of choice tonight.

The pattern I'm using is Simplicity 3631, which I've made a long time ago - here. I'm doing a bit of a search for the perfect pencil skirt, but am too lazy to trace a BWOF project out.

I don't think Simplicity 3631 is the answer either, but there isn't a whole lot left to do in order to finish it. So far, I have sewed the darts, back seam, set in the zipper, sewn up the waistband, and sewn up one side seam. (All painfully French-seamed, hence the slowness of actual sewing.) I've also cut the lining out, so tonight, all I'll need to do is sew the lining, attach to the skirt, and hem. That should be doable in the time I have this evening.
