    I just made this in a linen/rayon and love it. I’m looking for more fabric in my stash to make more, more, more!

    Has anyone made it in a knit? I have some interlock that would be really cute.

    Does anyone know what would happen if I fused a lightweight woven interfacing to the interlock for the waistband? I want to keep it stable.

    I think you could fuse lightweight woven for the front waist band.

    Jenny is absolutely right.

    McCall make a lovely soft interfacing which works very well on knits.

    You could use one layer (on half the waistband ) for the back gathered bit and a double layer or interface the whole front piece to give a nice flat front.

    I really like to use a woven fusible interfacing on waistbands where I don’t want it to stretch at all. On this pattern it wouldn’t really be a problem to have a little stretch, but it might be something to keep in mind when you’re sewing other things for yourself.

    Thank you, all! I will give it a try and post a picture when I finish!

    Success!

    I cut the waistband on the crossgrain and used lightweight interfacing. It turned out great! I need to fix the hem, though. I need it a little longer in back, but it looks like I may have overdone it. I need a fitting partner!

    Oh I love that Charlie Harper knit! It will be so perfect for fall 🙂 And now I want to try making the Everyday Skirt in a knit too, I’ve made two out of chambray and love the pattern.

    The Birch interlock is really lovely to work with and so cozy!

    I love the pattern, too! I think next time I make it, I’ll cut the back panel a size smaller. My rear view doesn’t need the extra gathering.

    I have a border print fabric coming in the mail for my next one–it has children chasing lightening bugs. This fabric, but in blue (sold out, sadly):

    Oh that will be lovely!

    And I just ordered some of that cardinal knit, I hope you don’t mind a shameful ripoff of your idea ;-). I think it will look so great paired with tall brown boots, my nutmeg colored corduroy jacket, and an infinity scarf 😀

    Superm, Hawthorne threads have both colours in the border print in case you need both. They also have the matching prints if that is any help. Happy sewing Mim

    Thanks, Mim! I got 3 yards from fabric.com before they sold out, thankfully. I love Hawthorne Threads, though!

    Vothgirl–excellent! As long as you don’t live on my block, we can be twinsies. :^) You’re going to love it. Soo comfy.

    The blue Michael Miller isn’t quite sold out on fabric.com; it’s back, and it’s on sale! They have 1600 yards left. When I bought it, they had more than 20,000 yards!
