I have returned to sewing up the patterns from my capsule wardrobe challenge and today I completed the Ginger Skirt. I originally brought some lilac cord to make this skirt from but then realised the fabric I brought for the Madeleine skirt was too narrow and I swapped the fabric round. The ginger skirt has now been made from green cord (fitting in nicely with the colours of my capsule wardrobe):
This is fabric I brought back in January on my trip to Chicago. I visited a Joann’s and just had to buy some fabric whilst I was there.
I made version two with the beautiful shaped waist band. The high waist on the skirt is very flattering:
I feel very feminine in this skirt and love the waist band detail. On the inside I used some green polka dot fabric:
This skirt was surprisingly quick to make from cutting out to completing the hand slip stitches on the interior it took me half a day. I then went on the cut out the jasmine pattern from the left over green polka dot fabric, but more on that tomorrow.
