My Sewing Archive

It’s crazy to think I’ve been sewing now for a little over five years. I first started my old blog back in 2012 and that was to showcase learning how to sew, discovering new patterns, testing and trialling different fabrics and making heaps of mistakes! However, without going through that process I never would have been able to learn what fabric types I liked the most and what pattern styles suited my body shape. I was also able to learn the basics of sewing including how to cut a pattern, how to following instructions, how to use my machine and importantly, how to modify patterns to suit my own figure. Even though I still make mistakes, I’m more confident in my pattern and fabric choice to be able to create outfits that I’m proud of wearing.

New Look 6107 Skirt

Pattern: New Look 6107 Skirt
Description: Straight slim fitted skirt with back zipper.
Fabric used:Β Blue lightweight linen

I needed a plain, slim fitted skirt to wear with a few outfits I had purchased this summer, one being a Witchery top that needed to sit flat. So I scoured my patterns and came up with this one. This skirt was incredibly simple to make and takes very little time. You could knock out a few of these in a night and is perfect for beginner sewers. I have since made a blue demin one in the same fabric as my latest BurdaStyle Smock dressΒ and plan on making a black one to cover my basics.
