Been a bit of an absent blogger this week. The reason is that I’ve been busy excersising, prepping for a 5K race tomorrow. And clearly I am not able to concentrate on both excerising and blogging simultaneously! When I get bitten by something I tend to go all in, and letting other things slide.
Anyways I sewed a skirt earlier this week. The inspiration is the full skirts with elastic waist that is currently sold in every Swedish high street store. I’m normally drawn to more sleek silhouettes, but was curious to go outside my regular taste. Also I recently bought a ruffler/pleater and wanted to try it out. The pattern is totally freestyle and I will post a tutorial later on. All in all I’m happy with the result, but if I do it again I might reduce the fullness a bit. The fabric is linen, very soft with good drape. I bought it a fabric fair that I visited with my Etsy mate Kaja a few months back. I had originally planned to make a regular a-line skirt, but I’m happy that I decided to try something else. As I said I will show how it was done in a separate post. You don’t need much in terms of pattern to make this skirt, and it is quick to make.
