Rusty Cord Skirt21:37
So my final entry for skirt week is this full corduroy skirt in rust. When I woke up this morning I didn't even have this fabric in my possession. At lunchtime it was finished in the washing machine and hanging out on the line to dry. At 3pm I thought, ah go on then, I might as well start and see how far I got. Guess what...I finished it!
|Not quite as good as the previous wall|
The front has two v's on the yoke and the back has one deep v and two darts. I had a few issues sewing the V's in and would appreciate if anyone has any V sewing tips!
I didn't have any coordinating bias tape so unfortunately I had to do the hem properly, turn and press, turn again and press then stitch. *sigh* I hate hemming properly.
This skirt has got quite a wide hem radius (I totally made that phrase up) which will make it comfy and easy to wear. One day my legs might start looking a bit less pale too.
|Next to tweed, corduroy is my favourite clothing fabric.|
p.s. Sorry for bombarding you with posts this week, normal service will resume next week!
