Burnt by the sun

Hello, everyone! Today I want to share a new sewing project of a skirt. My mother has a lot of straight skirts, and her wardrobe needed a variety. Therefore, when the question arose of sewing a summer skirt, I proposed the A-line skirt. In my opinion, this skirt is the same classic like the pencil skirt. It is easily combined, suitable for any shape and age. So I sewed this A-line skirt in two copies at once: first for my mother and then for myself.

And now more details about the sewing project. This pattern immediately interested me. The model begins at the natural waistline, and then gradually expands to hem. The magazine was advised to use a softly draping silk fabrics with a pattern, but I decided to use a white cotton fabric similar to denim, with a small amount of elastane. Therefore, due to its heavy weight texture, the skirt save the view of the trapezoid. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, only replaced the recommended ribbon waistband to the waistband of main fabric. So, the skirt looks more harmonious. All the sewing steps you can see on video and blog.

These photos were taken on one of the hot days near the St. Basil’s Cathedral. For a comfortable walk around the city in this weather, it is best to choose natural breathable fabrics and light colors. So, my mum combined a white skirt with a linen shirt of a deep blue color. The result was a fresh summer outfit.

Enjoy watching! Thank you for attention!

    I thought your Mom was a Burda model, until I read your post! How beautiful, comfortable and elegant she looks! I love the stiff natural fabric; the skirt would be perfect here in South Africa too!
