The seams are a little wonky. I doubt anyone but me notices. It was a really fiddly fabric to cut straight. So I tried to straighten it out as I serged it and just let the blade cut off the excess. It wasn't my finest sewing moment. Every now and then I get so impatient and just want it to be done so I just slop it together.

grey maxi skirt
Last Fall I made a skirt. I picked up 1 1/2 yards of "fashion knit" (91% polyester 9% spandex) from JoAnn Fabrics. The label said slub lock knit. Lately I've been noticing unfamiliar terms on sewing blogs such as ponte knit, cotton drill, cotton poplin, voile, and on and on. So I've been trying to pay closer attention to the labels at the fabric store. And it makes me realize that I have no idea what kind of fabrics I'm working with. I just see it in the store and if it feels nice, if it's washable, and under $10/yd I'm in. Even the term, jersey. What is the definition? Is it specific or is it pretty broad? I need to get myself educated. All I know is that I liked this fabric and I wanted it to be a maxi skirt. So I bought it.
