BWOF 7/07 Skirt 115


Let me begin with a warning Kittens...when tracing patterns, ALWAYS write down which BWOF issue the pattern comes from. If you do, you won't waste 10 minutes trying to figure out which issue it came from when you go to do the review! I'm not much of a yellow person, but turns out this is one of the colors that is good for me according to Color Me Confident I bought this stable double knit remnant from Trendy Fabrics basicly to round out my order to qualify for free shipping and it actually turned out to be a good purchase. It is a maize yellow with a faint white pinstripe running vertically. The pattern is a simple pencil skirt with no waist band. It has interesting front pockets and also a gather in the back panel down towards the hem, which I omitted. I figured I didn't need a beacon pointing out my big backside. It announces it quite well by itself! I didn't have an appropriate color invisible zip, so I did a side lap zip with what I had in the stash. I have a wide assortment of zippers at my disposal and if I can make it work with what I have, I do it!. The skirt fit very well with minimal adjustment. I think it will be a fun little skirt for Spring and Summer. So what are you sewing for the warmer weather to come?

I love this skirt! I am drawn to it as I love yellow, especially a soft yellow as this appears to be. I have not bought any fabric from Trendy except lining fabric. I need to revisit their site.

Very pretty and perfect for spring! I've made this skirt before and the back gathers really add a interest to the hem, thus pulling the eye away from the butt.
