Description

I made this skirt for a friend of mine few days ago (for Christmas).
My friend wanted something “feminine” and geeky ! So I tried to create a garment like that :)
I embroidered the number 42 with my sewing machine but I failed, it’s not regular :/
The fabric I used is cotton but this fabric doesn’t have “wrong side” so this skirt can be worn in 2 different ways :)
I used this tute : http://boredandcrafty.com/?p=3221&cpage=1 it’s very simple and fast to sew but it takes a LOT of fabric (I used 3meters ! )

    I so love this skirt. I’ve just come back to it for inspiration! Your skirt seems to hang in a better way to the one in the tutorial. Did you use elastic in the waistband in the same way?

      Yes, I did every thing as indicated in the tute. Maybe the difference is made by the fabric ?
      My fabrics were quite heavy. And I also made a hole for the waist too big…
      Thank you very much for your nice comment :3

      Mais entre ton commentaire et les nombreuses visites que j’ai eu, je m’en suis en peu douté :3

    Love the fabric and the skirt fits you great-you should make one for yourself too … ;) And for the number 42 – I had no idea it has so many meanings! Shame on me :)

    Not geeky at all! Looks great. Thanks for the link. (Probably being slow but is your friend 42?)
