Fun Skirt Style

I am feeling pretty good about my sewing at the moment. Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together.

floral cottonI have had this lovely printed cotton for a long time it was a part of my fabric stash that had been waiting for the right garment.I have just finished a fun colourful skirt that was so easy and fun . I used a pattern I have had for quite a while Vogue 2092. This is a wonderful pattern the skirt has no waistband .Oh Yeah !I am a big fan of  the lack of waistband on a skirt .It is so comfortable it to sits on your hips, and it has a nice straight style.

pattern V2092I had not used this pattern before so this is my wearable muslin. I lined it in voile as a layer , as it wasn’t very heavy and a separate lining in white polyester for comfort.

I drafted the pattern onto cotton fabric to fit and do adjustments before cutting.The skirt has 2 sets of darts in the front and the back.

It fits well and is a great addition to my wardrobe. It is such a lovely colour and it is so comfortable . I have decided for myself life is to short to wear uncomfortable clothing. I love style but really value garments that are not hard work to wear.
