The time for making the dreaded skirt pattern had finally arrived and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was. All I needed to do was to take my pattern pieces for the upper body and then simply extend them to form a skirt. Since I’ve already marked out the waist band on the pattern pieces it was really easy to find out how high the skirt should go.
I was a bit nervous about the circumference of the skirt turning out too small or too big but with ~3m I reckon the size is just “lagom” (Fyi, this might be the best Swedish word ever. It describes something as being not too much and not too little, just perfect in between).
The wonderful fabric is an old bed sheet donated by my mum (thanks Mum!). In some strange way, it kinda works together with that top… Perhaps with a different waist band it could be useful?
