This time I cut it off at the waist and cut two half circle skirts out of a striped voile. If you are sewing stripes this is how to match stripes. It’s so soft and somewhat sheer so I did two layers. I altered the bodice to be a surplus top for nursing. I used a soft floral woven that I found in the remnant bin. It’s so soft and drapey. I added elastic to the waist line to give me a cinched waist. I love that it’s flattering and feminine, but it gives me breathing room. It’s comfortable and breezy. I’m a little worried about making it work for Fall and Winter. Any idea’s for wearing it with layers?
These fabrics are so gorgeous and perfect together. It was a match made it heaven. I love all the different blues and how well they go together. There’s also a really light peach flower on the top that warms it up. I have a little bit of each fabric left to make some pretty things for my daughter. I also added a snap at the neckline so I wouldn’t flash anyone. The fabric was just a little to soft and drapey that it wouldn’t always stay as closed as I wanted it.
Here’s how to sew lightweight fabrics.
The skirt is so drapey and flowy. I feel like a princess when I wear it. The stripes of the skirts go opposite directions which is really cool in real life. The stripes are really hard to photograph so they don’t show up well!
