I finished a skirt to go with my Parisian Top!
I used the Ginger skirt pattern by Colette Patterns. This is my first time using the pattern, and I loved it. I cut a size 8 based on my waist measurement (even though my hip measurement put me at a size 2 or 4. I’m much more straight than curvy.) and I think it fit just right.
I lined my skirt using this tutorial. This is the first time I’ve lined a skirt and I’m feeling so pumped that now I know how to do it. I love lined skirts but I’ve been afraid to try because I wasn’t sure how to sew the lining around the zipper, but it wasn’t bad at all.
I used some stretch twill from Mood for the skirt, and some stretch charmeuse satin from fabric.com for the lining. I love the twill and I think I have enough left to make Owen some Sunday pants. Hopefully!
I sewed one invisible zipper in back when I was first learning to sew, and that was it until I made this. I like invisible zippers and even though I thought it was hard to get the part below the zipper to look good, I think with some practice it’ll get easier and easier.
I want to make more of these for sure. I wanted one that was a basic color so I could wear it a ton, and now I’m thinking some nice prints will be next.
