Last night, I did some studying! I read all the instructions to the pattern, watched and read all those tutorials, and got my mind wrapped around what I need to do.
Today, I have been busy! I traced the size small vest pattern and made my circle skirt pattern. All the pieces are cut as well!
I do still have to shop for buttons, get a zipper, get some tailors chalk and get a few spools of thread. I haven't decided if I want to use bias tape on the hem or not either.
