Even though winter is nipping at our heels, my daughter & I are both going to look warm & bright in our new skirts. I used to sew clothes a lot...but lost interest & now the sewing machine is pretty much just for patchwork. Fabrics for dressmaking became harder to get, it was easier to buy ready-made...time was precious...you may be the same. So today I spent some time constructing these two skirts...not quite finished, but I can see the chequered flag waving in the distance. A couple of posts ago I had the pattern for this skirt which I picked up at a quilt show... a few people asked about the designer. It is by an Australian designer, Polli's Folli aka Kim Pollington & it has been quite easy to construct, & sits quite nicely...A line panel...flattering to most of us. I only have an email address for her, not a website or a blog.
The second skirt is from an Anna Maria Horner pattern...Study Hall skirt. It has been really easy & looks great with the contrast box pleats...DD is most excited about it!
Do you do much dressmaking anymore?
