Yesterday I posted that I made the low-volume maxi skirt as explained on So Sew Easy. My first try at it was nothing but problems, and my fabric, a thin slippery knit, kept getting stuck in my throat plate. I did a bunch of research this morning and only found one thing to try that I had not already given a shot- changing my needle. I wanted to try adding a second layer to the skirt because the material is so thin that panty lines are highly visible- more so because the fabric is shiny.
I grabbed the skirt and cut another layer for it, then attempted sewing it again with the new needle. Amazingly it worked pretty smoothly though I did have to help the fabric along a bit. I am much more pleased with the outcome with the second layer of fabric in the skirt.
I think this will be a great basic piece to have in my wardrobe and should be matchable with a lot of different tops.
