DescriptionThis is my own version of Twinkle by Wenlens A-Plus A-line skirt! I used Seta fabric, but its more like polyester. I have no idea what Seta is but anyway. I put in some pleats going in different directions, I made pockets and then did a bubble hem. I shortened the yoke section. I also put in a invisible zipper for my first time! I used the waist band pattern and the back of the skirt pattern for my skirt. I pinned the rest of the skirt in place cut it out and then sewed it up. But I couldnt foget the help of my handy cork board which is the next best thing to a sewing mannequin. Couldnt of done it with out it! I had to put pockets in because I just love pockets and I cant go with out them. I made them extra deep because I hate the shallow ones. I recently bought a bubble skirt and I admired the way it flowed as you walked and the feeling it gives me when I wear it, so I knew I had to make it a bubble skirt. Then I made a flowing, pleated lilac singlet to go with it, so I would have something to wear with it. Turned out great, it was quite easy, compared to the skirt. When I started I had so much work to do the finish line was 1000s of miles away and I had little hope. I made the singlet twice, and made 2 temporary versions of the skirt. I spent heaps of time reading magazines, and thinking long and hard, and sketching my ideas. After a long 2 weeks without most of my TV. nights it finaly came to an end, everything pulled together and I cant believe the outcome myself!
