The wait is over .. As I had mentioned in my previous post that I am taking part in the draft along. And my skirt is done.  I drafted it from the book Design it yourself clothes by Cal Patch. Some measurements did not work for me. So I corrected them and have written tips on how we can correct it for a perfect fit. I have also shared a lot links to techniques and tutorials I used in sewing this skirt.. So happy reading along..

Drafting a Skirt for women

How is your weekend going,  lazy ?... Well not mine. I am participating in a draft along. So getting geared up to finish my self drafted A Line skirt. If you have the Design it Yourself book , then head on to Justine's blog here and see for yourself if you too can participate.

I am done drafting the pattern and verified with one of the skirts I have , looks fine. So will not sew a muslin. You see the fabric I have purchased is a green and no prints. I am planning to do some fabric painting on the fabric I have chosen. Wishing myself all the luck. Will be updating soon after I finish painting and sewing the skirt.
