San Diego, Calif...
This skirt is whimsical and timeless. I used denim and a heavy cotton for my skirt. The skirt in the book,Twinkle Sews,is made out of wool and wool crepe. Since I live in Southern California, I decided to use fabrics that are wearable for here! Wool is only good for a few months of the year. It is a shame to make something and not get to wear as often as one likes.
The skirt went together so beautifully. The panels are easy to match up. They are so many variations one could do with this skirt- many different colored panels or the possible pairings could be endless. A skirt made in a single fabric would be beautiful as well. The skirt would be pretty to make facing inside out. An unfinished look, and the ability to see all the seams would be interesting, too. There is a formula in the book TwinkleSews to get the proper fit. I cut a little more than I needed and had to trim the skirt down. TwinkleSews’ patterns tend to run on the large side.
I used a denim of for the top of the skirt and a heavy cotton for the lower part. The panels are easy to put together. I used a side invisible zip. I also used a gross grain ribbon for the waistband. I believe there is a tutorial on how do use gross grain on Burdastyle’s website.
