Sewing away happily

Last night I started the pattern of the week! I just wanted to pop in and give a quick cost break down.

• Fabric- $0 (My sister gave me the remnant of a lovely black crepe-back satin she used for her bridesmaid's dress for my wedding)
• Pattern- $5 (Vintage)
• Zipper- $1.5 (Hobby Lobby)
• Bias Tape- $0.10 (thrift store)
• My time- Priceless ( I couldn't resist :D)

So in all I've spent just under 7$ on this skirt and have had a lovely time toiling away at my sewing machine, happily avoiding my homework and saving myself hundreds over these skirts.
A well made black skirt will last a girl a lifetime. Her waist line will not, however...
