I have made another quick garment for myself while sewing for my client.
She gave me left over material she’s had for years, so I made this skirt.
She has a good eye for quality, printed fabric.
I wanted to keep the length but also have room, you know… for ventilation.
I’ve sewn skirts for others that have requested splits, I realised I don’t have any skirts like this and thought I needed one.
I did realize my whole outfit is monochrome, this was no accident
To make this I sewn two long rectangle pieces together and kept fitting it to me until it was snug. I hemmed the edges and side splits, then inserted elastic in the waistband. Make sure to wrap the elastic to your waist, plus an inch overlap before cutting it.
I finished and wore this yesterday, I feel as though this is slightly different to what I’ve seen in any shop. I’m keeping this one but I’ll be making more from different fabric for my shop.
