Skirt, View A, was my May – Make A Garment A Month challenge project. It was completed in June but I just had to have the right top to make my outfit complete. My heart was set on recreating the outfit on the pattern envelope.
Look what I found:
The chosen fabric is Beige, Dark Olive Green & Dark Gray Light Weight Worsted Wool Suiting Fabric Imported from Italy Suitable for Slacks, Suits & Jackets 100% Worsted Wool 63″ Wide Hand Wash Cold or Dry Clean from Fashion Fabric Club.
The pattern went together smoothly. Not sure why I was surprised at that. In looking at my skirt and the envelope perhaps I need to take it to the dry cleaners an have them steam it. I pressed and pressed and yet it is not flat on the front like the envelope. Wait, I interlined the skirt which added much weight to the wool fabric. Come to think of it that had to effect the final look. I wonder if I used a press cloth and steam would that make a difference in the pleats lying down?
To find brown, cuban-heeled, seamed stockings would make this outfit totally rock!
