Simply Simplicity

Well I've finally sewn something and yes it's another skirt.......I really like making skirts they would have to be one of my favourite items to sew........My pattern of choice today was Simplicity 2655 Simplicity easy-to-sew pattern, view E and as the pattern states it is pretty much an easy sew.  A very good pattern to have as it has six different skirt styles to chose from.......

I cut the sewing pattern out on a size 16 and then scaled the skirt back a size after the initial fitting. I'm no good at measuring things so sometimes I cut my fabric out to the bigger size pattern (just to be safe!).  I figure you can always make a skirt smaller but not bigger.......( that's the beauty of muslins that I don't sew......you have an idea of the sizing before you cut into your good fabric). This A frame skirt sits about and inch below the waist line ( I must say it's very slimming style). The fabric I used for the skirt is a fairly stiff printed linen with a slightly open weave. The stiffness of the linen made the skirt very easy to construct, press, and fit.

The fitting of the skirt on the dummy makes
the waist look very big......
This is a longer version of this style and is made in
an open weaved heavy cotton which was very hard
 to sew, my straight stitches started to look wonky.....
