ManDan's Kasia Test Version

Added Feb 26, 2011

by A Sewing Arc...

Berlin, Germany






This is actually a wearable muslin. I bought both fabrics because they were cheap. I made a Kasia skirt as a test version first because I wasn’t sure whether this pattern would look okay on me. Well, I like the pattern but I still do not like the fabrics choice. The denim is so cheap that it starts to pill ( I wore it once) and fray. The one with the flowers was horrible to sew. I will probably make another one out of nicer fabrics but I will not keep this one..
The sweater in the last picture was knitted by mum – thanks a lot mum! :o)

Material Notes

Cheap denim, polyester, buttons from an old military uniform which I found in my Grannies button collection..




Garment Type
Business, Casual

    Thank you all! I will definitely do it again.

    @Apfelblüte: Ja, an der Hüfte könnte er einen Ticken weiter sein. Hochgerutscht ist er allerdings noch nicht.. Das sind noch Sitzfalten vom Frühstücksstisch.. ;-)

    The skirt looks fabulous. The lining fabric is cute too. It’s a bummer about the fabric, but at least you got a wearable muslin out of this.

    Der Rock sihet super aus! allerdings würd ich empfehlen, um klein bisschen in der hüfte breiter zu machen, damit diese querfalten weggehen. es könnte dazu führen,wenn man zu knapp an der hüfte macht,dass der ganze rock beim gehen hochrutscht…ansinsten ist absolut tolle arbeit!

    So on the picture it looks like a skirt that turned out well! But sorry to hear it was horrible sewing it and that it starts to pill! But still it doesn’t look bad. (i think..?) I like that you used another fabric on the inside!
