Girls Patchwork Balloon and A – line skirt with a bag of step by step instructions and a lot of options how to play and sew it differently.
;) Sewing GIVEAWAY PATTERN for this project if you leave the comment on my Bludor Magazine (www.bludor.com/blog) … for 3 winners.
If you like “Patchwork look” then this is perfect beginner project. It is the project for play and having fun…
You could use your knit fabric stash pieces, or you could recycle some old sweater for it.
It could be in one or more colors, just pure play on your serger or on ordinary machine. For summer version use old t-shirts, or jersey scraps.
It is not just ordinary sewing, because you could play with stitches and make skirt with visible stitches or invisible. I like my serger stitches to be visible, to see the construction, and so I did make them in black contrasting color and it look like drawing lines, some kind of graphic element.
