Brook Blossom Skirt
One Thimble Issue 12
has just released! I’m excited to be sharing a women’s pattern included in the quarterly Australian ezine that I was given a chance to preview and sew up. For those of you unfamiliar One Thimble is a compilation of sewing articles and varied patterns from a wide range of pdf designers.
The pattern I sewed up was the Women’s Brook Blossom Skirt by Orange Daisy patterns.
The skirt is a well constructed woven pattern. Your end result is pretty on the inside and out. This does mean, french seams. Lots of french seams. I’m not sure why they are not my favorite sewing technique- but we all have our things. That being said the result inside of your garment is well worth the effort.
The skirt closes with a side zipper. The installation is very straight forward so don’t let that dissuade you.
I used a light silky material from my stash. I was a little nervous with the iron, hence the creases that seems to pop up more significantly in pictures.
Overall I’m very happy with the my new skirt! The drape is great and the flow over the hips makes me really happy. I sits fairly low, closer to my hip. I’ve found after having a few kids I tend to prefer things to sit higher so I think I’m going to tweak my next version to bring it a bit higher.
It would be a quick muslin to see how the fit hit for you.
This is officially my last sew before my sewing machines are packed up for our cross country move. I’m nervous to have them packed and traveling for weeks on a big truck- someone tell me a story about how they did it and worked out just fine 🙂
