To test out my new sewing machine (Juki F600), I finally managed to sew the Kelly skirt by Megan Nielsen, that I had on my list for a long time.
I chose thin plain cotton, so it’s more a summer skirt. But for getting friends with my Juki it was perfect.
The skirt is size XS, I omitted the buttons in the front and replaced them by an invisible zipper in the back. To make the skirt at least a bit interesting, I stitched the hem with one of the many many decorative stitches.
plain cotton, invisible zipper, hook and eye
