Back in March I went to Sew it Together in Sydney. As part of the fun we visited Prints Charming and went shopping and stitching. Everyone bought a scrap pack (or two) and a sew-along was born thanks to Karen.
my scrap pack laid out
I bought the Sew What! Skirts book and drafted my first paper pattern to suit my measurements. Great book and I learnt a lot in just this one project so am looking forward to trying a few of the other styles mentioned.
I finished the skirt awhile ago, but as is typical I only just got around to hemming it when I decided I should wear it to Church on the weekend. I backed it in plain stretch denim I bought while in Sydney too. I wasn't sure about the stretch element but it does sit nicely and feel good.
I need to add a couple of darts to the back to get it to sit better, but all in all I am VERY happy with how this turned out. I might look into a less bright scrap pack to make another of these skirts at some stage.
