My daughter chose this blue (fake synthetic) tartan for a skirt last fall. The pattern is from the fall 2011 issue of “Knippie”. It has a lot of bits and pieces, and it took me a some time to get the stripes right.
On the pockets the skirt has decorative stiches for wich I used metalic pink yarn. The buttons on the pockets are also for decoration.
When I had allmost finished the skirt, my daughter seemed to have grown a lot, and the skirt didn’t fit anymore, so I had to undo the sideseams and the zipper, cut a new waisband,… and start allover again.
I had barely enough seamallowance. Knippie has rather big sizing, but my daughter skipped a size, and went from a size140 to a size152.
But anyway the skirt turned out rather well, and she’s happy with it, alltough she won’t be able to wear it for a long time,…and I was taught a lesson, allways make sure to give enough seam allowance when making something for children, or work a bit faster ;-).
“Terlenka” fabric, zipper, six buttons for decoration, synthetic lining, metalic yarn for embroidery.
