I have loved Provençal fabrics, food, colors, the people, the place since we visited France, driving from Nice to Antibes, in 2006. Such a lovely trip. So when I saw this fabric in Paris last year, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with it!!! A full, but shaped skirt! Yes, this print and fabric is more commonly used for tablecloths and other household linens...but....that's just how I roll!!!
|The Hollyburn skirt from Sewaholic has gotten rave reviews by many sewists and its shape was perfect for what I envisioned. But, some had mentioned the need to contour the waistband and having had that experience on a pair of pants I made, I bit the bullet and did it! I was taught every step in this amazing Tutorial by A Fashionable Stitch|
|While the waistband may not lay perfectly on mannie.....|
|It's a great fit on me!!!|
|I finished the back with a button and embroidered loop.|
|The construction of this pattern is perfect and the pockets are awesome!!!|
While I purchased this fabric and created a skirt with it on a bit of a whim, I think it will end up being more flexible, utilized in more styles and through more seasons than I had even hoped! Sew Chaotically! - les
