Got slightly side tracked this week. Although I have been working on the silk cami top I also felt inspired to make myself a mini skirt with this fabric.
It is my favourite fabric in the shop at the moment – would have it in my home and my wardrobe. It is designed by Melody Miller – we still have some left – unless I decide to use it all on me! You can buy it here: ttp://shop.sewoverit.co.uk/products/typewriter
I decided on typwriters as it was going to be my ‘secretary skirt’. Very appropriate. for those of you who have done our Intro to pattern cutting course – you could easily make up a pattern for this. Simple fitted straight skirt with a facing and fully lined. As this fabric is canvas like it’s not great with tights as it sticks so I used one of our lining fabrics. (Poppy approves).
I hemmed it by hand as a machine hem would detract from the fab pattern. Now wishing up something to do with the clocks fabric! Ta da!
