The inspiration came from watching Grease recently, haven’t watched since I was a kid but still think I could recite the whole script backwards! I created the pattern using Wenlans skirt yoke pieces and the Burdastyle Linda pattern. I needed to adjust the Linda pattern by shortening the length and altering the skirt top to fit the Wenlan yoke pieces. The lining has interfacing to give the skirt real fullness. I wasn’t sure whether to enter this competition, purely because of time, but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed making something more glamourous than my usual casual wear. Thanks to my beautiful 13 year old daughter Ruby who did a great job taking the pics.
There are 3 layers in total, top is chiffon, middle is satin and base is the lining with interfacing.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
