Barcelona Skirt

About a week ago, I finished the Barcelona Skirt by Amy Butler for me. The fabric is Modern Meadow by Joel Dewberry. I am very happy with the way it came out. I did have to change a couple of things because I don't have an invisible zipper foot, and I did not measure myself correctly. :) Once I realized that I was going to need a new foot, I was already half way done, so I kept going. There may be a way to use a normal zipper foot, but I wasn't sure how... Anyway, it worked out fine because I made a size bigger than I need to (much better than making a size smaller!) so I just turned the waist over and put in elastic. Since it is big in the waist, I am able to pull it on. I am thinking of adding a drawstring because it is still a little too loose. I love how the fabric is fraying at the layers!

Happy Monday everyone! Is it possible to put in an invisible zipper without an invisible zipper foot? Does anyone have experience with this?

The skirt looks great! Don't sweat the invisible zipper foot thing--I had to get one last month, and I found them in Joann's. They were right next to the invisible zippers--they come in a package of three or four (different styles for your style of machine). It only cost a few dollars, so not really a big deal. I was afraid it was going to be an expensive item.

Love your skirt! I have always used a regular zipper foot - never even heard of an invisible zipper foot!

I know nothing about an invisible zipper foot (scary!) but this skirt is adorable!
