Tulip skirt project

That is my first project that I managed to finish. I am a novice and I feel I need to improve in some areas, especially in the finishing. I am a little bit messy.

This is actually my muslin that I decided to finish because the actual skirt is in the trash bin (I hated the fabric and I made a mistake that I didn’t want to fix… too complicated)

I used the Marie pattern but made some modifications on it:
- I shortened the length of the skirt: removed 2.5 cm.
- I kept the front as the original pattern but at the back I inverted the pleats.
- I put an invisible zipper at the back instead on the sides.
- I added inseams pockets.
- I added 2.5 cm to the waistband.

Material Notes

Cotton that is usually used for shirting. I’ve underlined it with Bemberg lining.

    Give it time, as you keep sewing more you’ll figure out how to finish and tidy things up a bit. I think you did a smashing job, it looks wonderful on you.

      Thanks! I must have done at least 3 muslins, before getting there. But I want to do it again.
