Two Tone Grey Skirt - January

My January garment is all finished - self drafted, sewn and photographed!


A yoked, straight skirt with false pocket flaps.  Contrasting grey fabrics used for a little 'colour interest'!

You can see more details in this blog post.
Cheers,
Karen.

    1. Thanks Sharon. I guess we have a stash because we loved the fabric enough to buy it - shame for it to remain on the shelf!

    1. Thanks sew much - I have drafted all my basic block patterns with the use of The Pattern Drafter Ruler (you can read about it here http://www.sewwellmaide.com.au/2013/10/a-story-part-2.html). I then modify them to create other styles. Great because I know they will always fit!

    1. Thanks Jolanda. Sometimes a straight skirt in a solid needs a little something extra.
