I bought the red fabric for a plain pencil skirt. Still haven’t made one.
Somehow I ended up doing daffodil embroidery on one of 1/4 circle peaces. Guess it was the spring that did it. It took a whole day of lazy embroidering and a few hours of lazy sewing.
It seemed that the red fabric was non wrinkly when i bought it, but i was wrong (as you can see in the pictures). I decided to underline the skirt instead of lining – less hemming, and it made a pretty seam finish. Hem is done with bias tape. Invisible side zipper. One in seam pocket.
