Selfish Sewing - Ladies Skater Skirt
Thursday, 11 December 2014 10:29:32 pm Australia/Darwin
Nanna J (Alison's Mum) has sewn many a skater skirt for her twin 3 year old grand-daughters, but this is the first time she's made some for herself!
The pattern is the Ladies Skater Skirt from Pattern Emporium. Fabric is Joel Dewberry's Birch Farm in Cotton Sateen in Hydrangea Egg Blue & Sage. Despite the cotton sateen being a slightly thicker fabric, it drapes beautifully as you can see.
The skirt on the right uses our Teal-Blue Soft Waistband Elastic. Co-incidently it is a perfect match for the fabric (don't you love it when that happens)!
Oh, and look - this one even has pockets! This pic is also a good example of how crisp and vibrant the colours are on the cotton sateen.
Unfortunately, we could not convince Nanna J to model the skirts herself, but I can assure you, Nanna rocks in her skater skirt!
