African Print Skirt: Simplicity 2605

26 Jul

I made this one a little while back. It’s from the same pattern as the rust skirt (Simplicity 2605)but it is View A, which is longer and has a faux wrap with pleating at the waist.

The length isn’t the best on me but I really liked putting this skirt together. The instructions are straight forward and the skirt is actually sewn on both sides, so no chance of accidental exposure at work.

Faux Wrappage

I saw this slubbycotton print in Centrepoint Fabrics and fell in love.

But, unfortunately I made this skirt before seeing Tasia’s fab print matching how-to at Sewaholic.net.

Back view - matching fail.

Oh well, we live and we learn.

TOTAL COST:

Pattern: $7.5

Fabric: $20.8 (1.6m @ $13/m – Centrepoint Fabrics)

Zip: $4.0

TOTAL: NZ$32.30 / US$23.50

    Oh cute! I love the black and white print especially with a pop of colour on top! (And no one but you will really notice the non-matching at the back – the print’s taking the attention away from the seams.) Thanks for the link!
