Seedling Gypsum

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!
