This is my version of the Colette Sorbetto and Nette Vivante’s Scallop Skirt (which will get its own post soon!)
(you can get it here: http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top and here: http://nettevivante.blogspot.fr/2011/04/scallop-button-up-skirthihihi.html)
This is a “remnant project” if there was one-notice how I had to take out the pleat and add CF & CB seams to manage cutting it!
I made my own bias using a left-over fabric from version 2 of the “Blouson Dress” (coming soon).
All in all, a very simple project to sew in an afternoon.
For some reason though, I had trouble with the bias.
It looks thinner than it should be, no?
It’s 1/4" wide, is that right?
I kind of just skim directions so I sewed it RS to RS, then sticthed in the ditched.
The hem I finished by hand.
A very crinkly silk that necessitated some careful handling. I also followed the pattern for the bias strip lengths since I didn’t trust this fabric not to stretch as I sewed.
