Here is the Pattern Review gallery. There were some lovely contributions, and what can I say, all together, a heck of lot of sewing went on.
I was asked how I sewed so much and don’t really have an answer. I have manic sewing episodes, this was just a slightly longer one. I made no plans to take part, it just happened after I made this hat.
Then I started rifling through stashed patterns and old magazines, and imagining styles made up in stashed fabric. A few skirts got made.
From left to right first row
1. a dead simple skirt from an old Burda magazine pattern, made in a jersey fabric which has horizontal flounces of grey knitted in to a black background. Waistband black jersey done yoga pants style.
2. printed cotton skirt lightly gathered onto a shaped yoke, old Patrones magazine
3. Straight skirt with side pockets from a pattern passed down to me
1. A line skirt in fine black and white stripe cotton
2. Skirt from a Burda magazine pattern, 18 small tucks at the front. Yes, I am crazy.
3. Skirt in a printed voile with a shirred top set onto a yoke (why shirring not gathering? Ask Patrones)
1. Gored skirt constructed from ancient Burda mag. pattern, in a printed crepe, set on a black waistband.
2. Bias cut flared skirt in a printed chiffon with woven satin stripes
3. Bias cut flared skirt from freebie Marfy pattern (well free with pricey catalogue that is)
1. A line skirt in wild print on cotton.
2. Black poly basic straight skirt with side slits.
3. Velvet skirt with overlapped shaped side slits faced back.
