We love what Jen did with the Everyday Skirt pattern! She created her own block printed fabric. We love unique one-of-a-kind pieces like that! Here’s Jen to give you the scoop.
Did the fabric work well?
Yes, it did! I’m a printmaker and often print my own fabric. The linen base I used in this project is one that that I’d worked with many times before, but the print was a new design. I’ve since sewn two more: one in a green shirting cotton, and another in a textured gray flannel.
How did the making go?
This was the first skirt I’d sewn. I chose the pattern because it doesn’t require an invisible zipper (which I didn’t know how to insert at the time) and because it has a flat front waistband instead of an elastic one. The instructions were very easy to follow, and I was surprised at how quickly it came together, and how professional and polished the skirt looked when it was finished.
What was the best part?
The side pockets! One of the joys of being able to sew is the ability to put pockets in all my clothes.
