Description

I bought a little bit of this Michael Miller interlock online and wanted to use a pattern where I could do something interesting with the stripes and dots and thought about the Kasia pattern. I’ve made it once before. Great pattern, btw! I love seeing all the different versions here.
I intentionally used my normal size instead of going down a size to accommodate for the stretch because I wanted it sit a little lower on my waist. I also flared the skirt slightly at the hem. I omitted the pocket and buttons and put the zipper in the back. It’s self lined— I guess that’s what you’d say. I made a whole other skirt (but took out the gathers on the side yoke pieces) and sewed it in as a lining. It’s top stitched together at the hem. The knit is super soft and the double layer makes me feel like I’m wearing sweatpants. Very comfortable. There is more on my blog if you are interested!

    Your skirt caught my eyes as I was randomly shuffling through the site. I love the dots and stripes composite. You created a interesting piece!

      after reading your blog post, i have a few more words :) … try craigslist if you decide to buy a serger, i got mine throught it, it was like new and i paid 1/3 of the retail price (the lady sold it because she couldn’t figure out how to thread it, she basically never used it).

      your kasia is giving me an itch to try one in jersey, too,adapting the waistband to accomodate my expanding pregnant self. do you think it would work?

      Thanks! and craigslist-great idea! I’ve been looking on ebay.
      I definitely think you could make a maternity version. The waistband has princess seams so there are a lot of places you could alter, and if you skipped the interfacing it would be nice and stretchy!
      Congratulations!
