Although I am on a quest to find the right fit for the Cleo Skirt, I have taken a break from that skirt.
I purchased the Gypsum Skirt pattern from Sew Liberated (during its launch sale).
I had also purchased fabric from So Sew English Fabrics during a 50% off bundle sale (keep watch on their IG feed for sale codes).
The pattern and fabric were are a match made in heaven.
I made view B (inset pockets) and this was my first time sewing with a knit fabric (very slippery).
I chose view B because I have hips and I didn’t want the extra attention to my hips with the pockets of view A.
My waist band is horribly made…well to me at least it looks sloppy.
My stitching in the ditch was not done well.
HOWEVER, this is a skirt that I don’t have to tuck in my shirts so it is totally wearable!
The fabric is a cute southwest print in a great color (love orange shades!).
Miss Mary wasn’t in the mood to be my photographer so I took a photo at my hairdressers (B. Organic-thanks for the blond balayage!)
My pocket looks a little wonky, but that was because I had clipped my hair clip inside.
The only thing I found difficult about this pattern was the material-I just wasn’t used to working with it.
I had purchased some really pretty fabric from Craftsy.com during a sale and I will be making this skirt again (will be a slightly stiffer fabric) and I also found some great knit in the clearance section at Joann’s.
I also plan on making Sew Liberated’s Metamorphic dress with linen from Joann’s and rayon from SSE Fabrics.
Lots of sewing in my future.
I am taking a short break from my knit wrap…I needed a mindless knitting project so I cast on a Harry Potter First Year Scarf-Love Harry!
Have a great week!
