So far I have completed 2 skirts and the third one is half done. I am on a roll and enjoying myself. Both skirts have been worn to work, one is quite good (for a beginner!), however the spotty one (below) needs the lining shortened (as it can be seen when I am sitting) and I am not overly happy with the shape. But regardless of these issues, no one else probably has a clue!!
|This one is just below the knee, very comfortable to wear and sits well. I am very pleased with the results. (sorry for the poor quality photo)|
|The fabric is heavy cotton (?) and it doesn't crease which is great. The pattern is quirky!|
|I decided to add some lace to this one and it looks really nice (I think so!).|
Far more practice is required, but slowly I am getting there!! I am learning how to adapt patterns to fit my shape and not rushing does make a huge differences.
I have been on the hunt for skirt patterns and struggling to find ones I like. I turned to Ebay and it didn't take long to locate brand new patterns that were just what I was looking for that didn't cost very much. So far I have bought 4 and will continue to add to my collect.
|Hoping to make the one the model is wearing - but no hurry as it will be for next summer.|
|This is a 1950's reproduction with a tailored skirt that tapered towards the bottom and fits well around the hips. This is what I have been looking for as I prefer the fitted look rather than the loose style for work.|
|Another straight skirt that will come in very handy. This pattern also comes with some tops I would like to try, something I haven't made before.|
|I bought this one for the long skirt and the cami pattern. It will be good to have in the collection even if I don't make it straight away.|
Do you have any skirt patterns that you would recommend? They need to be simple at this stage, I haven't advanced to the next level yet.
