Description

Getting back to sewing after 15 years, without a machine, frustration with lack of styles available in stores led me to completely HAND SEW this lovely, simple skirt.

I made a few rookie mistakes with the waist band, forgetting to stitch the seam before attaching it, so it stood straight up instead of conforming to my waist! I fixed the problem with darting and adding loops to cover up the darts!
I used a stretch lace sash to finish it off.

Material Notes

I used a self embroidered sheer cotton and cotton broadcloth for lining

      Aw, thank you for the compliments! Of all the stuff I’ve done in the past year, I am still proudest of my hand sewn garments! :)

    Thank you ladies!

    Yes hand sewn, start to finish. LOTS of back stitch for strength! I have a post up on my blog about it if you’d like to see! :)
