September is a very busy month for me but luckily I still have time to sew some small projects for the house and finished my skirt for 2013 style the stash sew a long. The skirt is easy to make but taking time to finish it because I only have one hour to sew everyday.
I want to make this type of skirt for so long but always distracted with other projects, but I am happy now that I finally made it.
And here are the details of the skirt:
I used burdastyle skirt pattern, 04/2013- 117 B size 38. I don't need to copy the new pattern because I used it before for my sweetheart dress. So, time saved!
1.25 yards of cotton drill from my stash in deep purple color, invisible zipper, fusible interfacing and same color of thread.
How I worked on this skirt :
If you follow my facebook page, you must have seen my post about skirt in progress over there. But if you aren't following me, here is the link - burdastyle skirt in progress
I started to work on the skirt front by pleated the both side as the instructions then work on the skirt back by sew the darts, then sew the skirt front and back with right sides together. Serge the raw edge of the skirt using an overlocker.
I sew the waistband to the skirt but accidentally I cut the waistband a little bit smaller than the original pattern, so instead of making 2.5 cm waistband I made 2 cm waistband :)
My work almost done! I sew the hook n' eye on the top of the zipper. Then I sew the back slit and sew the skirt hem using hand stitching.
Have a nice weekend!
