And to save my sanity, I decided on yet another quick and simple project.
A straight skirt sewn on machine.
Then I pleated the upper edge to the right waist measure and added a small strip of fabric for waistband.
I finished by folding and stitching the hem, and adding hooks and eyes for clouser.
The only thing that took some time was the hemming – if I’d sewn it by machine I could have called it my
“1 hour skirt”.
What: A 1860s skirt
Pattern: None – just used rectangular pieces
Fabric & Notions: 3,5 m blue patterned light cotton, thread and hooks and eyes.
Time: 2 hours
Cost: about 300 Sek
Final thoughts: The skirt turned out just like I envisioned, and my sister likes it too, The only thing in need of change are to shorten the front a bit to keep my sister from stepping on it.
