Dancing Skirt

Hello everyone!

Since I don’t have to work on easter holiday (retail, derp…) I finally had some time to reduce this gigantic pile of fabric under my bed.

So I made a skirt! :D

It is inspired by Tara Starlet and is made out of linen. And that is the one and only reason I didn’t iron the skirt. It would’ve been all wrinkly once I’d put it on anyway…meh :/

It is lined and I used french seams and bias tape. The button closure isn’t  provided in the original pattern, so I added it on my own. The pattern is from McCall, but I can’t remember the number. I will edit the post once I find out. It is definitely a modern pattern.

I don’t have anyone to take a picture of me, so I had to build my own tripod out of my ironing board and a few books, so excuse the angle and the quality, please!

And some details:

That’s it :) I hope you like it!

Hello there, I'm Reika, 22, from Germany and I'm a trained seamstress, cosplayer, retro and vintage lover and fabric hoarder ;D Unfortunately I blog in German so I thought it'd be a good idea to share my sewing projects on here, as I always try out old/vintage/reproduction patterns and would like to share my opinion on them :)
