Finally finished my navy Vogue 1247 skirt yesterday. Not before time. Don't really have an excuse for my tardiness except for grandson's quilt and No.1 son's 50th birthday but really I just couldn't get motivated. Anyway it's done now.
I took a few shortcuts this time and only bound the horizontal hip and pocket seams and overlocked the rest.
previous effort so I won't be showing it.
The fabric is navy blue although it doesn't look like it, another 80cm remnant of cast iron polyester I have had for years. I don't think these skirts will ever wear out.
Again I added extra length to the skirt and even made the pockets a little shallower in an endeavour to fit the pattern onto the fabric but alas I had to face the hemline with some 1 inch wide bias binding to conceal my knees and preserve my dignity.
Now to tackle February's garment. The toile (muslin) I am working on isn't complete yet so I will have to think of something else to make.
