Olivia worked on her skirt today. She did the dart, the side seams and the zip. Next step, the waistband; then it's just the hemming to go. Probably won't get a chance to work tomorrow, but who knows.
I found this pattern really frustrating - even though it's easy to stitch, the measurements seem really off; according to the size chart, for Olivia's waist measurement she should make the UK12 (despite usually wearing an 8 or sometimes 10); when we cut out and assembled the 12, it's (not surprisingly) way too big in the waist! We were able to adjust by increasing the darts and taking in the side seams a bit, but why is it so wrong? Weird.
