I have got a little sewing mojo back up and running and after a trip to Fabrics Galore, I made this great wrap round skirt. The fabric is a fine checked wool, so lots of matching to do – I just bought an additional 60cm to make sure and was a total bargain at £2 per meter! FG is just the best.
Its view B, thought the longer version would be better for work and am planning on making another in plain black wool flannel. I did add lining to this skirt as I really don’t like unlined skirts, tights clinging and also the fabric will ‘seat’ too. Maybe I will add a little Ozwald Boateng influence and add a bright lining to the flannel. While browsing the pattern books i added Vogue 8930 to my must sew list and will be going in search of some fabric for that – maybe some faux shearling fabric that I saw at FB or boiled wool? What would you make the coat in, any suggestions?
