The skirt is the ubiquitous Jenny – although every version of this I’ve seen has been amazing, I was reluctant to buy the pattern for ages; I only wanted the basic pattern and $7.50 seems a lot for a simple pattern I had to print myself.. But I did eventually give in, and I’m glad I did; it fit perfectly in the size 34; I had to add an inch total at the top of the waistband but that was only a minor adjustment, and I also drafted on a vent using the instructions from Sunni’s sewalong. I lined the skirt in bright red acetate (left over from my summer coat), mainly following Sunni’s instructions but adding lengthwise ease as recommended by Eugenia. I love this skirt!
The top is a simple t-shirt made using the crew neck pattern in Sew U Home Stretch (the neckline is lowered as per the instructions for the scoop neck in that book). 20 minutes might even be an overestimate of how long it took on my serger. I added a twin needle hem to the sleeves and bottom.
cotton sateen, acetate lining, printed jersey remnant (Id like to say rayon but it’s probably polyester!)
