Skirts and Patterns
You’d think that somewhere among my gazillion patterns I’d have a pattern for a knit skirt. Well, I did, but it was not one I liked – it had an aysymetrical hem and I had tried making it before. I took the UFO and tried evening out the hemline, and it just wasn’t working for me.
So, to plan B.
I went to see who had pattern sales today and Hancock’s won out. Simplicity patterns on sale for $1.99. Here’s what I came home with.
Simplicity 2977 – This is for a really cute, simple knit skirt, but I also like the top/dress patern that has a mock wrap with ruching around the waist. It will be really cute.
Simplicity 3881 – This isn’t for knits, but the skirt is darling. And I picked up some cute fabric off the 60% off table that I’m going to make this with. I’m going for view A, which is the one the model is wearing.
Simplicity 3624 – I like the version that doesn’t have the gathers under the bust line but is flat, so that would be view D, which will look darling with the skirt from above.
I also picked up a clean, uncut version of the infamous, favorite Simplicity 4076
and another copy of Simplicity 4095, both which I already have but lost some of the pieces too over the last year. Plus, 4095 (below) needs to be made in a smaller version.
More later when the fabric is dried and cut.
