Just finished another project! This is New Look 6816. This one was a dead simple knit swing skirt made from a cotton rayon blend jersey that had a twill-like knit on the reverse. I accidentally melted it with my iron…thus discovering it wasn’t 100% cotton!
Allow me to gush for a moment about my new walking foot that Mr D got me for Christmas. It makes sewing knits dead simple! I used to struggle with puckered seams and the top fabric not following along with the bottom and this foot solved all that!
I made the skirt in 3 hours, pretty close to the patterns 2 hour estimate. (btw, the fabric really is raspberry, see?):
Total cost: 2yds jersey @ $10 yd, plus $1.50 for some inch wide elastic.
Make again? Absolutely! I’ve already got another fabric on the table ready to cut this week! It’s another crazy print, this time picked out by Mr D!
