Seafoam Silk Ginger Skirt

Cedar City, Utah...






One of two skirts finished for a sewalong I held via my blog. I do believe this is my favorite of the two. It’s made from one of the latest Colette Patterns – Ginger – and was done up in 4 ply silk – a first time use for me. I incorporated a boned waistband and drafted my own pocket which I applied to the skirt by hand. The skirt really turned out lovely and I’m so excited to wear it again and again. So easy to wear too!

      No, it’s actually not. It is time consuming though. It made this project take on a longer life. I followed Gertie’s tutorial via Gertie’s Blog for Better Sewing. Boning the waistband is seriously a revelation. I’m one of those that ends up tugging my skirts down alot because they end up hiking up to my ribs. Boning the waistband keeps the waistband put. It’s SPECTACULAR! Totally recommend.

    Just love your version of the Ginger skirt. It’s a pattern I’ve been wanting to try myself.
