Finally here comes my first post for 2013.. I have been a little silent in blog-o-world. But nevertheless I am reading all the posts in the blogs I follow and taking a breather. Today I am sharing with you all a second skirt I drafted.. ROSIE SKIRT!!
Do you remember the Chevron skirt I drafted and there were some fit issues at the waist. Well I corrected those and made a second skirt. The pattern is from the book 'Design it yourself clothes' by Cal Patch itself.
Must say that this book is great for designing skirts. When it comes to making blouse I still need to figure out some corrections in the drafting steps to get a comfortable fit. Justine has suggested some corrections on her blog during the sew-along . I will be trying it out when I get time and of course patience :)
This skirt I made for my client and she very much loved it! Phew.. I too liked the look of it. Made it from 100% medium weight cotton. The top stitching and the button placket add to the look of it.The sewing instructions are very less . Especially on how to add a button placket on skirt. But it not a Herculean task to figure it out. I found it pretty easy to make it. Also this is my first project with Flat felled seams. check this link on how to make them. What do you say ?
