Spotty Onion 3021 skirt

A skirt for me. View C of onion 3021.

I only made minor adjustments to the pattern.

1. I reduced the finished width of the waistband to 1.5 cm
2. I increased the bottom band to 3cm finished width. I cut it from self fabric and pressed a very slight curve into it before sewing it onto the bottom of the skirt.
3. I faced the front flap edge with a piece of self fabric 20 cm wide cut slightly off the grain to match the grain on the skirts edge.

Before I did anything else I taped and stay stitched the waistband edge of the skirt piece to prevent stretching as the fabric is very soft and drapey. I used the paper pattern as a guide for the length of the tape.

I love this pattern – despite it’s simplicity it is so well thought out that the flap hangs down without dislodging any of the drapes folds formed by the bias cut.

Material Notes

Spotted cretonne fabric – very soft and drapey. Lovely to sew but it needs to be treated with respect to avoid stretching or snagging.
