* A-line skirt

Posted on May 22nd, 2007 by becket. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.


Hi- Becket again. I know that I just posted a skirt – but I’ve been wanting to post another one that I finished. Like the other skirt, this one is made with vintage material. But, this time I found the fabric in an antique store (yes, among turn-of-the-century furniture and glassware). I followed a pattern for a simple A-line skirt (Butterick 3220) and once again with Amy’s help on how to do facing, a lapped zipper and a lining, it all came together quite nicely. Maitreya also gave excellent advice on skirt length. Thank you both!!

By the way, this picture was taken pre-pregnancy! I guess I have to wait until next summer to wear this skirt…

    Hi,
    I think this skirt is certainly different to anything i’ve ever seen.

    Its a nice fabric pattern though so well-done!
