to Sewjourn (and, let's face it, was looking for any excuse to make a scrappy quilt...), the manifestation of the planned skirts has been somewhat delayed.
The only skirts I've made this month have been samples for GJ's shop display....Ooops - in MY SIZE..... how did that happen?
The fabric is the new decor weight sateen Parson Gray (by David Butler) and IT IS A DREAM to sew and to wear. The pattern is my A-Line Skirt pattern, which began life as a skirt I designed for myself, as a good basic wardrobe-builder.
I love a skirt with a yoke...it sits firmly without cutting in to the waist, if you know what I mean, and kind of holds in the belly a bit. It can be made short or long, in winter or summer fabrics and it can have a feature fabric panel, or not. I'm a bit of a long-skirt-with-panel kind of girl.
this pattern is "THIS IS MY BEST EVER INVISIBLE ZIP!" I thought to take a photo of mine. Nice zip - shame about the badly aligned fabric print...oops.
And I took a photo of the famously well-finished invisible zip from the inside.
