Mrs Stylebook Skirt is a Success!


Mrs Stylebook skirt

Here is a photo of style#36 from the latest Mrs Stylebook magazine made up in a lovely bright pink sueded silk duppioni. The fabric was a gift. Thanks, Pam! It has enough body that it makes the hemline stand out slightly, and I think it turned out pretty cute. I used my regular narrow waistband method instead of their recommended band with elastic in the back. I didn't have to lengthen it at all, and it really went together quickly, not really taking much fabric either. I hope to make another out of a green poppy print charmeuse. It won't have the body of the duppioni, but since it's polyester, it may do all right.

Thanks Kayleen! It's a really fun skirt, and a new skirt shape for me.

Liana,

Love the skirt, but lets talk about the top. Did you make it?

Sonja, Thanks! Yes, I made the top too, a long time ago. It's a white on white cotton print that's flocked in a leaf pattern, and had holes within the design. I just cut around the flocking in a pleasing design after sewing the shoulder and side seams. It's a very basic shape, almost a square, with tucks at the shoulder. Long OOP McCalls pattern.

Thanks, Pam! I'm glad you approve the fabric! It turns out I love the washed silk duppioni and I never would have known it but for you. Thanks again.
