I walked downstairs after finishing this skirt this afternoon and my sister declared I looked like vintage Spring. I loved the image.
Readers, I present to you yet another Butterick 3134 skirt: (you can also use the skirt pattern from my eBook which has a very similar shape!)
Well, kind of. I basically just used the hip part of the pattern- the
top I drafted and the bottom of the side seam of the pattern I folded toward the center
seam to make it less full. 🙂
A friend gave me this gray-green denim twill. It is really durable. And I ran out of time to iron the skirt before the sun fell too much to take pictures. 🙂
The skirt is suuuuper plain on purpose, except for a few reverse applique leaves falling down the side. 🙂
I did a facing for a waistband this time instead of just folding over and stitching the top like I normally do. It fits much nicer and it doesn’t add any bulk like I thought it would. 🙂 If you’d like to know how to do these techniques, here is a tutorial.
Here’s a close-up of the reverse applique. I used a paper template and my free motion foot to do the stitching. It was really fun and easy, just a little teensy bit time consuming. 🙂 So worth it though.
Have you ever done reverse applique on a skirt? Enjoying your January? Ever stood in kitten heels on top of a pile of firewood? 😉
