Another Skirt Thought

Lisa responded to my question about overlaying the patterns. She said she just does it on the fly, though. I'm still going to use tape on the gored skirt pattern to keep the seams aligned. One reason for this is that I want to make this skirt more than once. I just searched Old Navy and they aren't showing the skirt a client was wearing a few weeks ago. Surprisingly enough it wasn't what you think of with Old Navy, it actually fit her, was long and she could sit without either pretending to be a plumber or wearing a belt so tight she couldn't breath! I know all the mothers out there can relate to that. Anyway, the skirt was a version of the Simplicity Carolyn Skirt. (I'll edit later and add a pic.) This skirt was made of cotton, was long and flared. The seams were sewn on the outside and all the raw edges were finished with a hong kong binding done with a silky fabric. It was very cute. I have the perfect cotton abstract print in my collection. So, I just need to get the pattern to fit. I'm sure this is doable.

  1. I've actually got a skirt that I love that is a morph of the Loes Hinse Swing Skirt and the Textile Fabrics Brussels skirt, with pockets from my Loes Hinse Oxfords. I did it 'on the fly' ;)...but I liked it so much my List of Things to Do now includes 'get those patterns back out and trace off a morphed pattern for that skirt'... ;)
