After all my muslins it was time for some real garment, and it had to be a simple one. I want to have a new jacket and skirt ready for Christmas, and time is flying.
First there was our Sinterklaas feast and its preparations, this week my son had his 12th birthday (Hurray, 12/12 he became 12) and this weekend I'll spend in London, visiting the Couture exhibition in the Victoria and Albert Museum and listening to Christmas carols in the Royal Albert Hall. I look forward to this very special weekend, but together with my work there's not so much time left to sew next week.
The skirt I made was BWOF 08-2006-103. The review of this is here.
Two detail pictures here (lightened them so that you can see some details, black is so difficult to take pictures from). More pictures in my picture album.
As said, this was a simple project. But a black skirt is always a good item to have and I like this one's special back godets. The only special thing I did was adding tailor's tape to the waist, before lining, to prevent stretch.
Tonight I will cut lining and interfacing for the jacket that I'm doing in the Stitch and flip jacket class on Pattern Review. That's the jacket I hope to have ready end of next week to go with this skirt.
Hope London is cold but not raining. I will think of all of you when I'm at the exhibition. When I'm allowed to make pictures I share some next week.
Just a teaser from the museums website:
