It is a really quick make apart from the turning out of the straps which always takes a long time and lots of patience! I used a bright yellow thread to topstitch with to add some interest to the navy dress!
Well, I’m wearing a shirt that doesn’t go very well so I feel like I’m not letting this skirt shine but to me it is PERFECT! I really love everything about it – my favourite fabric EVER! It can come up a bit big so I’m so happy that the buttons on the waistband can be positioned to tighten the skirt. I also added a small dart to the side of the waistband to shape it and make it fit a lot better to my form!
I only had 1m of the main fabric, which is also lightweight so I used the chambray as a underlining but also made the skirt front and back in the full pattern length as I had to shorten the main fabric to fit the pattern on 1m! I also added a lovely lace exposed zip which makes it even prettier!
I had an amazing day at the Knitting Stitching show yesterday and can’t wait to go back today for another meetup (at 12pm at the Innocent big knit stand) and for a Q&A/Interview with Make Thrift London which is 11am at stand I69 so if you are there too come say hello and if you haven’t got a ticket yet then please use my discount code GAB17! Hope to see some of you there!
