1960’s Camel skirt

June 6, 2013

I finished this Mccall’s 8077 pattern.

I made the dress into a skirt by moving the zipper from the side to the back seam and cut some length off the skirt. I had a few issues with gathering and will really spend the time to do 3 rows of gathering stitches and a hand baste if I do something like this again. I lined this skirt with a mid grey chetah print fabric I had in my stash.

  1. Don’t you love how you can get extra mileage from a dress pattern by using it for a skirt pattern?
    And your gathers look fine. They can be fiddly, can’t they?

  2. I love the seams down the front and the very sixties feeling level of fullness. Plus what could be better than a cheetah print lining!! I think I’ll have to copy this!
