Last week I purchased a chocolate brown viscose/poly/lycra blend jacket weight fabric that will go lovely with the cream Burda skirt I made. I had been snoop shopping just prior to the fabric shop and there was a lovely cream and cholocate brown dress that I was admiring. Mmmm, nice!
Last year I was also browsing through Spotlight and I was wearing a pink camisole and a green cardigan (with jeans I think) and I came across this cotton eyelet fabric:
So this morning (and some of yesterday) I sewed up this skirt using my altered Ottobre skirt pattern and look I have tops to match already!
For something a bit different I added 4 godets into the skirt.
I used these books for instructions on inserting godets:
I had read in Roberta Carr's book about adding godets, but when I came to follow the instructions, I found them to be very sparse and for the life of me could not follow. So to the sewing library (and this is why we NEED all these books) I found a two page spread in Claire Shaeffer's book.
Great instructions and a perfect godet:
I have taken a few more photos which you can see here if you would like.
Hopefully it won't take me a year to make up that cholocate brown jacket fabric......
