Illustration Friday: Moustache

Earlier this week I came across a website called Illustration Friday, where each week they post a random topic for which you can then draw your own interpretation. It's basically a weekly illustration challenge! I've been looking for something like this for a while, so I'm really pleased to come across this website (*cue little happy dance* \o/)

So this weeks topic is................ Moustache!

Quite a funny topic I think you'll agree (and maybe one better suited to being done in  Movember) but I pretty much had an idea of what I'd draw soon as I seen the topic! 
There's so many people having these finger moustache tattoos and one of my friends has one so that's where I got my idea from. I wanted to keep the overall image basic so as just to focus on the moustache.

I'm pleased with the overall drawing and more so as I didn't use a reference point for the girl, which is probably why her eyes came out so big, but I like her that way!
The only thing I looked up was moustache styles. (I hope nobody looks through my Google search bar hehe!)
The background was done using Photoshop, I didn't intend this but after I finished the illustration I knew a background was needed and thought I'd get the best result by using Photoshop for it.

I cannot wait to see what the next week's topic will be, past weeks have included Underwater, Onomatopoeia, Together, Totem and Hidden..... this should be an interesting challenge judging by the previous one.

I hope your looking forward to seeing what I come up with as much as I am drawing them?

How To: Inserting a side seam zip with pocket

This skirt was meant to have a center back zip along with side seam pockets. Instead I put the two together and combined the zip into the side seam pocket and thought I would share with you how I did it or basically winged it ;)

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
