Skirt in a Day

In CategorySewing

Very retro fabric!

This weekend was quite productive.  I re-drafted an A-line skirt pattern I created late last summer.  That pattern was way too big, so I needed to take new measurements and draft a new one altogether.

Although I made a muslin skirt in order to adjust measurements, I didn’t want to make my first skirt out of expensive fabric.  Voila!  1970ish vintage linen fabric from my stash ( probably taken from my mom’s stash originally).  A skirt for free!

The skirt fits me perfectly, unlike the clothes I’ve made in the past from commercial pattern.  As an added bonus, it goes nicely with my watermelon colored Dansko sandals.  Woo hoo!

The next project on my list is to make my own pattern for a shirt to go with it.  You know … If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

    What can I say. You are now a designer of clothes. The skirt is very cute and very retro. I like it! The shoes are perfect.

    You are somethng else. There is nothing that you can’t do or try. Keep it up.
