Navy Meringue

The Facts
Fabric | 50/50 Poly/Cotton or Rayon/Poly suiting. It’s from, and it either cost $2.99 a yard of $5.99 a yard. I have ordered so much blue fabric and suiting fabric lately that I can’t tell which this is, lol. It’s not terrible, but I am glad I didn’t make a dress from it like I originally intended. The gray facings are made from a stretch suiting that is so soft and wonderful I wish I had ordered twice as much as I did.
Patterns | Colette Patterns, Meringue from The Colette Sewing Handbook. I used my TNT pencil skirt pattern to help me choose the size and grade the side seam from one size to another. I’m glad I did that, I don’t think I would have liked the slight flare the skirt would have had otherwise.
