My Finnish folk costume progresses: I turned my hand-woven fabric into a folk skirt from Askola, Finland.
I made an Edwardian outfit with a skirt and a matching bolero jackeet out of blue linen for the summer.
I made a Victorian side-button cycling skirt out of linen so that I can ride my bike in style. The skirt pattern is a free pattern by Bikes & Bloomers.
Otin osaa Eurokankaan ja Burdan sponsoroimaan viskoosihaasteeseen ja ompelin tällaisen kesäisen hameen.
I sewed the Lizzie skirt by Sew Over It.To make matters more interesting I decided to learn how to make a couture waistband with a Petersham ribbon.
My new Edwardian inspired outfit consists of a Truly Victorian Edwardian walking skirt and a lacy shirtwaist Beatrix blouse by Sensibility patterns.
I tested the Simplicity 3688 1940s skirt pattern. This was an easy make and I love the outcome. The skirt looks nice when combined with the Sew Over It Pussy Bow Blouse that I have also made.
I made a free Pleated Skirt Calculator that creates sewing patterns according to your wishes! I also made a tutorial for those that haven't sewn a garment like this before. Have fun with it!
This was a one quick project for my daughter. I found a small remnant piece of this lovely bright floral cotton and I immediately saw it as a spring skirt. I had the lovely Hazel skirt pattern that I used to make pinafores for my daughter and her friend. This time I decided to make just a skirt version. It did not take more than an hour to finish this make after the kids had gone to bed for the night! All the patterns were rectangles so they were quick to cut and sew together. Some gathering at the waist, an elastic band, a little topstitching to keep the elastic…
I made a skirt version of the Sew Over It Rosie dress using a beautiful floral fabric. However, this make wasn't so successful. I ended up estimating my size wrong and then damaged the front of the skirt by ripping a thread with a sharp pin.
