I have some fabric rests... hmm ... about 1 yrd.
It's not so much but enough for skirts!
I recovered this fabric by my mother, she wanted me to sew a skirt with it as I was 17! :-)
But I could sew this skirt one more time in in 20 years, it will be trendy again!
I love the colors : grey, orange and yellow: good combination!
And I have a rest orange lining! perfect!
I think I use this pattern for the tartan fabric:
From Patrones issue N° 295 the skirt N°2
Here a picture from the pattern skirt:
a simple pattern : 2 pieces and belt facing
and lining pieces ( the same as the skirt)
I think: quick and easy to sew!
Another yard :
I bought a rest fabric :
A lightweight wool fabric with spandex in red
- a little bit dark red ...
I think I will use this skirt pattern by the Patrones issue 279
It's a lined short skirt (N° 14) from Designer Drykorn but I will made it longer...
Here are the instructions ( I don't speak spanish, but I will made it with my own way! :-)
And I already found the shoes for this skirt! :-)
And the last fabric yard
I bought last winter this rest fabric too:
a wool fabric with a cool 60' design :-)
But I don't know exactly how to sew with it...
I have a yard.
Enough for a sleeveless dress but perhaps the design is too "heavy" for a dress?
I found else a skirt pattern ( n°39) from Patrones too :
We can't see it at the picture but the skirt has two pleats at the waist belt... and I don't know how the fabric design will look like with two pleats.. even if they are small...
For this skirt and the red one I have rose-red lining!
Now... I must stop thinking about more eventualities... :-)
I must start working! :-)
The first will be the tartan skirt!
I will relate about it! :-)
