Welcome to Thread It Thursday!!!!
Today, I have the great pleasure of doing a guest post here on Freckled Fashionista.
For this post I decided to review/display Simplicity Pattern 1428 View D.
For the skirt I decided to use a Navy Blue Organza. Since, I was using a sheer fabric I needed a lining. I decided on a coordinating Silk.
The pattern was pretty easy to follow. I did struggle a bit with the curved hem + doing it on the organza made it a bit trickier. But I was up for the challenge.
Let’s talk about adjustments. The only adjustments I made were to the lining fabric. I used the back pattern piece and cut it 3.5″ shorter and straight across instead of the curved hem. My goal here was to have the skirt lining end right where the side split begins. For the waist band casing I used the silk fabric since it would feel more comfortable against the skin.
All in all working with these two slippery fabrics took more time but it all paid off in the end. I got the skirt I envisioned.
I will definitely make this skirt again in a different fabric choice. I found the pattern to be pretty easy to follow along with. One thing I really loved is that there were not a lot of pattern pieces to cut out. Which made for an enjoyable sewing experience.
