Inspiration, First Project for 2012 and Back In The Sewing Game
Lucky magazine is one of my favorite magazines. The image below was in the August 2011 issue of Lucky magazine.
.I pair it with a black turtleneck sweater that has ruching on the sleeve with a black belt and some pretty suede ankle boots.
Here is pic of my pretty suede ankle boots.
Stay tune, I plan to change this look in the spring by adding a white jacket or shrug with a sleeveless black T-shirt and white shoes, this look will be closer to the inspiration photo.
As part of my 2012 sewing goal is to improve my sewing skills. As far as techniques goes the skirt is fully lined. I treated the lining and the fabric as one. It has a centered zipper and bias binding use at the waist, it does not have a waistband. The skirt was hand basted including all grain lines sewing lines and hemlines. I also bought a DVD from the esewing workshop.com. More about that in my next post. After watching the video I hand baste the hemline and I learned to hem the skirt by hand and not have stitch show on the front of the skirt.
