I made a skirt –
Here’s a close up:
And the back:
I made it using Vogue 7101 c1980 which I bought from the SPCA Op-Shop in Glen Innes. It looks a bit raggedy but it had all the pieces and hadn’t been used! This pattern only went up to a 10 so I added 1cm to either side of the front, back and pocket pieces and 4cm to the waistband. The material is a wool blend houndstooth that has a tiny bit of stretch:
This skirt was the skirt of firsts – pockets, belt loops (aka carriers!) and pleats. But the most exciting first was that I didn’t have to re-do or unpick anything – success!!
Have you had a success story recently?
