celestial maxi skirt November 15 2013, 0 Comments
supremely good, sublime
I'm in love with this skirt. I love the simplicity of the handkerchief hemline, the instructions for the french seams and the exposed elastic. This is the skirt mothers/fathers sewists dream of because it take 40 minutes to sew from cut to finish and the result is flawless and stylish. This skirt looks great paired with the Celestial Pullover or Pleated Tee and really hip with a layered look using the Seraphic Raglan and Celestial Pullover. Have fun playing with the hemline length to make a full, tee or knee length by just adducting the length on the pattern. On chilly winter days just add boots and Sunki leggins!
Fabric choices for the skirt vary from cotton lawn to jersey knit. Just make sure when you're shopping for the perfect fabric take the fabric off the bolt and check the drape. You want a fabric that will move with the person you're sewing for so nothing too stiff or heavy. I hope someone tries making the skirt in a lightweight small wale cord! Let me know if you do! Also, don't be afraid to try a 2-3" decorative elastic it can give the skirt a fun pop of color!
Happy Sewing - Shelly
