This is a short and simple post.
I made a skirt, hooray.
A Hollyburn skirt to be exact.
This fabric came from my work (I know, like a broken record right...).
It's a rayon/viscose/nylon blend which I have never come across before. It feels like a dream!
It also reminds me of the reflections in a swimming pool.
Boo Dogg also bagged herself some of this stuff! I cannot wait to see what she makes...
I actually made a frock for frocktails from this very same fabric (A Sewaholic Lonsdale, fancy that!) which I haven't blogged about, you can read about the awesome night here thanks to the lovely Poppykettle.
Oh wait, a gust of wind!
This is a great pattern to breeze through in a couple of hours.
Well drafted with straight forward instructions. Too easy.
And the pockets! so good.
I chose view B with the waist tabs in the mid length.
You can hardly see them in these pictures, but I found the perfect buttons in the stash to go with this fabric. I have a whole drawer of buttons and rarely have the opportunity to bust them out. It was nice to be able to sift through and pick a couple out!
Use your zoom peoples! They are green 1940's numbers with a pretty star-like imprint.
Pattern: Sewaholic - Hollyburn Skirt
Fabric: Rayon/viscose/nylon blend
Time: approx 3 Hours and then some hand finishing of the waistband on the couch :-)
That's all folks.
What's everyone sewing?
Thanks to the wonderful hubby for playing photographer yet again :-)
