I’m sharing a fantastic list of handstitch hems over at Craftsy with some handstitching tutorials. I used the list to choose the perfect handstitch hem for this pencil skirt. I found that there’s a great handstitch for stretch fabric. It’s takes longer than the regular twin needle hem, but it really looks nice. It’s basically invisble! I didn’t mind handstitching when I’m watching a show with my husband. Stretch velvet is a tad transparent so I lined the pencil skirt with a brown cotton spandex jersey.
I love the fit of the Erin Maternity Skirt pattern, and I want to make more. I like having fitted clothing when I’m pregnant so that I don’t feel so tent-like. This skirt is very comfortable and will stretch through my whole pregnancy.
I really can’t wait to wear this skirt for dressy Christmas events! It’s so fantastic, and I LOVE the gold velvet fabric.
