Syd has a skirt from Lands End that is one of her favorites. Its knit, its twirly, and its comfortable. Of course Lands End doesn’t make that skirt anymore, but it is simple enough that I could!
A few hours later; Violia! A twirly skirt for a happy little girl.
I had to overcome my dislike of sewing with knits to get this done of course. I took it really slow on the curved hem, used my double needle, increased my stitch length and used my walking foot. The result was perfection. I was so overjoyed with confidence I finally decided to attempt an Angel top. Since I needed to draft a pattern and had a few changes in mind, most notably the curved hem, I decided to make a muslin out of some grey knit I had in my stash that I picked up from the sale pile at G-Street for this exact purpose.
Don’t you love it when you make a wearable muslin?
ya me too.
Once I get a replacement double needle I’ll be pushing out some more twirly skirts and make myself another Angel top out of a prettier print.
