I've found this old fabric by my mother again...
She wanted to sew then a skirt for me with it...
when I was 17 :-)
But this kind of fabric will be always trendy I think!
I had one yard of this tartan fabric, so I could sew a skirt with it.
And I wanted to sew a simple skirt and I used this pattern from Patrones issue N° 295
I love the colors combination from the fabric :
A grey underground with orange and yellow squares.
With this picture we can see it better
I only made the skirt :
- a lined short skirt with a pleat at the middle
- front und back darts
- no belt, only front and back facing belts.
I used a rest of orange lining, it looks like very good with the fabric!
I love this combination!!!
Here is the skirt.
I think the skirt don't look like the pattern picture!
I thought it would be a skirt with a slight flare...
hmm, but it's rather straight.. :-((
I'm wearing it with a short sweater and grey boots, it looks like younger... :-(
I only made one alternation : I made it 2 inches longer the the pattern ... but it's not the reason why the skirt is straight:-(
It'a an easy skirt pattern but I don't like how the skirt fits :-(
I sew the lining with the fabric together...
Do you think, I would have to sew the pieces apart?
Perhaps it would change the fit from the skirt???
