I'm in the sewing zone this week - busting through my stash and trying new things. Last week I managed to buy Nicole Mallalieu Design's new A-line Skirt pattern at the Craft & Quilt Fair (it's also available online). I found a remnant of fabric I bought ages ago at Ikea which was just big enough, and made an a-line skirt ...
The pattern and instructions are great. I had never used an invisible zipper in a skirt before, but I certainly will again! I mostly followed the instructions - the only things I changed were the width of the yoke (mine is a bit narrower) and I topstitched (rather than edgestitched) around the yoke because I kind of like the look (although it would look more profesh to do it as per the pattern). It fits me really well and is comfortable - I see many more a-line skirts in my sewing future!
More creativity here, as always - pop over for a squizz or join in too. I hope your week is a good one!
