The All Points SkirtPosted: January 18, 2012 Filed under: 'The Material Lady', Fabric | Tags: Dressmaking, Patrones, Shirts, Skirts 5 Comments
I saw an intriguing skirt on the Artisan Square website by a lady called Rhonda Buss. She is kind enough to offer a Free Pattern Friday slot – and this was one of her free patterns. It is a long way from my usual style but I had decided that this year I really must try to experiment a little more so…
Also on Artisan square there are lots of ______ a month (fill in your choice of garment – its sure to be there!) and I thought I may join in with the Shirt or top a month (SAM or TAM – time to choose). Whilst I was stash trawling for skirt fabric I found this cotton which I thought would be lovely for a shirt – and as a bonus I could wear it with the Patrones purple jeans. It is just one of the many pieces I bought from Pamela at Material Matters before I took over as The Material Lady. I think it is probably sufficiently matured now to cope with being made up. I am going to self draft a very basic shirt pattern which I can adapt to the current fashion styles. Watch this space!
Your skirt turned out lovely, it’s a fun style! I also like the look of the shirt fabric you found and look forward to seeing your finished project!
What a lovely skirt, That asymmetrical hemline is a lovely and interesting detail.
All I can say is WOW!!! Your skirt is wonderful. You have made my day. Thanks for giving it a try.
Thanks so much for your comment! my faithful dog is Sienna!
Your skirt is lovely. I too found the All Points to be heavy.
