Flared skirt take 2

Hi there, ive started to make another one of the flared skirts that i made above but in the beautiful strawberry print cotton fabric i got from ditto fabric online a few weeks ago.

It is simply stunning, and its quite a thick cotton so i might be able to get away without lining it???? just need to wait and see.
Well so far i have cut the pattern out and joined the centre seam and fitted the zip.... now i have to fit the stupid waist band. This is such a fiddly bit as ive got to get the pleats in the right place so the skirt flares right lol. I gave up for tonight, i will hopefully go back to it tomorow night after work.

Speak soon

First time dressmaking!

Ive always wanted to make my own clothes and for my christmas this year i treated myself to a sewing machine and here is my first completed project.

its a knee length flared skirt. It took me a few days just purely because i was trying to understand wheat the pattern was telling me to do lol. The fabric is 100% cotton with a blue tiny flower pattern

i loved this pattern so much that ive bought another 2 fabric types lol.
i bought a beautiful deep royal blue fabric with little strawberrys and a kath kidson-esk flower pattern in a beautiful pink colour

I cant wait to make them!

Speak soon
