A while back Craftsy.com was having a sale and I fell in love with Seedling by Thomas Paul fabric.
I purchased three yards with no project in mind.
Then I found Sew Liberated’s Gypsum Skirt.
I made my first one with knit fabric, and I love it.
The fabric and pattern seemed a perfect match.
I made view B again and this time everything went very smoothly!
My waistband stitching in the ditch is much neater and I think the waistband looks well made.
I was cutting it close with the fabric as it was only 44 inches…so I cut part of the label into my seam allowance, does not show at all in the finished skirt.
I also used two beige fat quarters from my stash to make the pockets (in order to save fabric to make another project).
I have found that I have not had to alter the sizing at all with the change in material.
This skirt doesn’t seem as bulky as the Cleo Skirt.
I plan on making a few of these for fall to wear with tights and boots (probably shortening the length at least 2 inches).
Miss Mary wasn’t with me that day, so a fitting room selfie will have to do 😉
This finished skirt really boosted my garment sewing confidence!
Next up, Sew Liberated’s Metamorphic dress in Linen purchased from Joann’s.
Have a good week!
