That is my first project that I managed to finish. I am a novice and I feel I need to improve in some areas, especially in the finishing. I am a little bit messy.
This is actually my muslin that I decided to finish because the actual skirt is in the trash bin (I hated the fabric and I made a mistake that I didn’t want to fix… too complicated)
I used the Marie pattern but made some modifications on it:
- I shortened the length of the skirt: removed 2.5 cm.
- I kept the front as the original pattern but at the back I inverted the pleats.
- I put an invisible zipper at the back instead on the sides.
- I added inseams pockets.
- I added 2.5 cm to the waistband.
Cotton that is usually used for shirting. I’ve underlined it with Bemberg lining.
