I started this skirt about 2 weeks ago, but only finished it this morning because my sewing machine had to be evicted from the dining room while the extension was built. (Lovely extension now finished - see background!!)
The cotton fabric is from Ikea - it's about £6 for 3m in the children's furnishing section.
The skirt is made from 4 A-line panels, and the stripes were really helpful when trying to sew straight.
There is a zip at the back.
There are some pleats at the top, which weren't planned. It would appear I am thinner than I thought!!
Actually I think it was because I discovered my overlocking function, and this meant I didn't need such a generous seam allowance.
Get me, I sound almost technical! Just 6 months ago when I received my machine for Christmas it took me nearly 2 hours to thread the needle!
