When she asked for more skirts. Emphasis on the plural. I talked her into one time-consuming one and one quick one. I saw this black ponte and Simplicity 1072 on top of my pile of supplies. The serger was already threaded up in black and the cutting supplies were set up. I whacked this out in 30 minutes. I even improved the fit with back waist darts.
Note to self, she doesn't need a black pencil skirt. She already has one and never wears it. She says that they are too confining.
Actually, my slim skirts get very little wear for the same reason*.
Will I ever learn?
These skirts were quick, but a complete waste of my time. Next, the 300 minute skirt she wanted.
* A physical therapist says that skirts that force you to sit with your knees pressed together will cause your hips and lower back to ache. Your knees naturally want to splay out a bit and you should not confine them in one uncomfortable position all day. Who knew that narrow skirts are the sartorial equivalent of high heels? (I mean that in the sense that PTs treat many women injured by them.)
