I did it again, I made another skirt!
I’ve been enjoying my first Pattern Runway skirt so much that I made another. I actually made this one a few weeks ago but was too embarrassed to admit to making yet another skirt for the 3rd week in a row.
This version is in a lovely cotton I picked up forever ago at The Remnant Warehouse and it has been languishing in my stash ever since. Now I’m not entirely sure what I got it for at the time as I only bought a small amount and it has all together too much orange in it for me to want to use it for a dress, I can only imagine I had it mind as some kind of trim or to pair with something else?
By cutting it on the opposite grain I managed to squeeze it onto the amount I had purchased. I even managed to get the pockets too. The side seam pockets are fantastic, just one small thing. I need to move them up. I had shortened the skirt pattern last time I made it up but as I had omitted the pockets on that one I hadn’t measured their placement in relation to my own arms. This time I just matched the notches and sewed and well they could be slightly higher up for me. I’ve written a note to myself on the pattern for next time, because we all know there is going to be a next time with this pattern.
So it seems that I have finally come around to being a skirt wearing person! I’m now totally open for suggestions on your favourite skirt and top combinations as I’m keen to sew some more.
