The Mabel skirt pattern is horrendously easy - after buying the pattern (Love the electronic versions), printing it, sticking it together and cutting it out (30 mins). It only took another hour to make a practice version- before I cut into my fabric of all loveliness.
|Practice skirt - A pretty thick 4-way stretch!|
Then I just into this lovely fabric - Its an Italian print from tessuti (I loved loved loved it!), the fabric is only 2 way stretch (no idea what it is - probably a tencil/lyocell type of synthetic!). So happy with how it turned out! Now I just need some beige shirts with floral collars and Ill be like a garden :)
|Yep - Blurry photo alert! Love this skirt though!|
|Eeeek! So much foliage!|
The word on the blogosphere is that Colette patterns is doing a week long Mabel sewalong - I really like the look of the pencil skirt with the kick pleat - Would a red one be too bold?
Here is a lovely version from Giddy Davies as seen on Flickr - She has some beautiful Moneta versions too - Go and have a look a her stuff!
