Up for a Yard Sale?
I just might be with my Yard-Sale Wrap Skirt.
This skirt is Heather Ross through and through. The pattern came from Weekend Sewing, and the fabric is her Far Far Away line. It's that double gauze stuff that's all the rage. Definitely a new experience sewing with it, but worth the end result.
Fun, Full, and Summer-y to boot. Plus, the pattern itself was easy to sew, aside from the fact I had to hand-stitch the hem. Hand-stitch! Like I'm Laura Ingalls on the prairie. Sigh. Thank Goodness, I had Little Dorrit on DVD to get me through it.
It's stats, yo!
Pattern: Yard-Sale Wrap Skirt
Source: Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross
Fabric: The Frog Prince from the Far Far Away line by Heather Ross
Yardage: 4 yards (WAY more than suggested in the pattern, but I added extra panels and had to keep in mind the direction of the fabric pattern. Couldn't have upside-down frogs, now could I? Those things ate up my fabric.)
Made for: Moi
Date Started: June 13, 2009
Date Completed: June 20, 2009
Mods: Since most people who've sewed this skirt have complained about not having enough coverage from the wrap, I added two extra panels.
A skirt like this just makes a girl want to twirl...spin...
