Yes, I've been sewing. Sewing up a storm actually, but I've been pattern testing and that takes time and you need to wait for the pattern release in order to post.
Welp, that day has come!
I was lucky enough to get to make this adorable skirt. I love this pattern! It is a fun and fast make and depending on your fabric choice, you can make this super casual or dressy. It's up to you!
I used a fabric from my staff. This is a crepe in a rich print. I can't remember where I got it but I suspect it was a Fabric Mart purchase. This fabric was lovely to sew. I am now a bit sad I waited so long to stitch it up.
This skirt definitely has a swish factor.
Those little pockets are really nice too. I made the midi length. If I had enough fabric, I would have made it longer but I didn't. With super swishy skirts like this, they are a bit of fabric hogs.
I love the fit of this straight from the package. I made zero alterations to it. I simply matched my measurements to the pattern and it fits perfectly.
I also like the belt loops. Luckily, I had the black textured belt and it works with this quite well.
See how full this is? I should also mention that I covered my own buttons for this. I knew the buttons on this had to be special and covering your own was just the right touch.
My top, is the Itch-to-stitch Bellavista top in the softest knit from Sly Fox Fabrics.
I've made this top numerous times and I still plan on more. How's that for an endorsement?
But back to the fabric...
I found Sly Foxo online and went ahead and purchased the knit in several colors. I am so happy with how this fabric looks, performs, and feels, that as soon as I make the four or so tops I plan to with what I have in my stash, that I'll order every available color. It's amazing!
