How many adjectives can you fit into one post header?
Could probably manage a few more but pastel, floral, denim and ginger will do, oh and stretch.
That’s this skirt. All of the above. Started at #cbrsewingcrew, finished in time for the heatwave.
It’s Closet Case Files Ginger jeans pattern, used to make a skirt. Not by sewing up the legs! 😯 No, by not cutting them in the first place. I guess you could call in extreme pattern modification.Have you tried any major pattern changes?
Some really pale blue top-stitching and finally the perfect use for some Cath Kidston buttons.
I really like the fit and fly construction of the Ginger jeans (once I got the sizing sorted, as several people have noted, they run large). I thought let’s try that as a skirt. What could possibly go wrong.
In this skirt I finally managed some good looking bartacks, courtesty of PFAFF stitch number 43.
Worn here with my Grainline white linen and eyelet (sewing scraps) tank top.
Pattern: based on the Ginger jeans pattern.
Fabric: pastel, stretch, floral, demim from Pitt Trading ( I finally got there! after reading so much about it, thanks Jillian 🙂 )
Modifications: jeans legs turned into a skirt, not as hard as it sounds, just don’t trace or cut the inner leg seam.
What I like: the fabric, love it, so spring like. The combination of pretty with jeans styling.
Perfect for lunch at Brindabella Hills. It’s beginning to feel a lot like summer 🙂 🌞
Whats on your project table? Happy stitching!
