Summer skirt

For those do-it-yourselfers...

Summer skirt

Postby beachlion » Sat Aug 17, 2019 12:45 am

Beside camo, I have used only solid colors when I ordered fabric. To break this habit, I ordered a grey fabric with white and blue lines in it. It was also very light so ideal for summer.
The skirt is quite wide, the hem is 2 m (80") so it will flow around in the breeze. Length is 46 cm (18") and it is just above the knee.

It is quite a while since my last home made product but this one was made in record time and the quality of stitching has also improved. Maybe it is time for my own label. ;)

Outstanding - nice - comfy "A" line application.
Coordinated well with that shirt and I like those heels - perfect height.
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I do think you need a label for your own line of skirts. They do look great!! :D

Looks good! :D Maybe you should start your own line of skirts, beach lion. :idea:

Thanks for the compliments. I keep sewing as a hobby because I don't want any obligations or commitments. With 75, I want to enjoy life (in a skirt).
