This is the first skirt – the first cloth – I ever sewed. The lining is horrible, so I don’t show you (nearly got crazy) ;) I can proudly say that I ignored the swatch completely, maybe next time.
But I’m really confident and proud of it! It’ll feel so good to walk in the streets with clothes I sewed on my own!
Excuse my bad photos, but I’m so excited posting my first skirt ;)
There will be better photos when I’ll show you the matching Steffi-jacket!
Of course I shortened the pattern and added a slit so that I’ll be able to walk.
Edit: I added some high-quality pictures ;)
