Actually, I’ve been sewing like crazy. It’s a great way to release tension and get off to never never land 🙂
Check out this delightful skirt from Ready to Sew and, at the moment, it’s free. Grab it… Features: a layered PDF and half sizes, total 21 sizes. Remarkable!
- I sewed the size 38, and it was perfect, including the width of the waistband.
- My fabric is Kaufman Essex linen from Hancocks of Paducah. It’s a longtime favorite fabric for pants, jumpsuits, and skirts. It has just enough body with a relaxed drape – I wouldn’t do this skirt in anything really drapey, e.g., rayon challis, or too heavy, e.g., bottomweight twill.
- Loves – the pockets. The decorative flap is so cute, and they are truly deep.
- Be sure to catch the flap in the corner triangle. Got to keep it turned and flat…
- The skirt has a one-button closure, but I was very wary of using a button closing. Have you ever had a button pull and pull, maybe tear the fabric to which it was sewn? I opted for two things: I added an additional piece of woven interfacing under the closure area,
- and I used a waistband fastener for closure, with a non-functioning button on top!
About that top – it’s a Style Arc Elsie blouse, sleeveless, sewn in Kaufman Royal Cotton Oxford, from Fabric.com. What a delightful blouse fabric.
I love this and plan to wear it over and over as I search for a new house in Orlando. Easy dressing 🙂 Coco
