Retro Fruits Kasia

Added Sep 21, 2010

Kansas City, Mis...






This is the Kasia skirt in a retro fruit print with Japanese kimono silk pockets. I had to double up the silk fabric since it was too thin compared to the cotton. This has a cute vintage appeal with the button-up sailor pouch. The colors are a bit garish and print girly, but I had this fabric and needed to use it.

The waist band eluded me and I thought the instructions were a bit confusing. Until I realized you sew the front waistband panel onto the front skirt panel.. then the back waistband panel onto back skirt panel. Sew the front and back together and then add the second set of waistband pieces ~ which turn out to be the waistband lining. However, they are added last.

I took my measurements prior to sewing this so I would be sure to make the right size. Well, I measured out for size 42. But this skirt sits on my hips and falls below the knee even though I took a 3 inch hem. I would say the pattern runs big.
