Jungle skirt for Summer!

Posted on in Articles · Self drafted patterns
Hello dear readers!
How are you today? I am very happy to present you my last work today! I announce it to you: This is my jungle skirt!

Perfect for every day, it will bring a little bit of wild in a daily life! Or it may be used as a camouflage skirt in the jungle? Hum… Maybe not a good idea! 😉 With my luck, I would fall on King Louis and he will surely love it and stole it from me! NOOOO! ( Yes, I know… I have a super great sense of humor, please laugh! 😀 ) Sooo! As my sense of humor is quite dubious it is better if I talk about the skirt! Don’t you think?

Two months ago I bought 1 meter of fabric with jungle print without knowing what to to do with it. I found it pretty in the store, Stoff and Still, and I thought that one day I would surely find to do something out of it. And this week, with the sun shining and glowing, I thought it was the perfect time to create a skirt.

So I worked on a pattern and I was inspired by those jeans skirts that are quite trendy at the moment. As the fabric holds itself quite nicely I thought it would be worth the try! And so with Valentina (my super companion), we drew a little skirt with loads of seams and overstitches. I decided to close the skirt with buttons to make it more sporty and to add a sympathetic detail. And after printing, pasting and cutting the pattern, I could start the work, I didn’t meet any particular difficulties in sewing as the fabric is a cotton. So it went quite rapidly! Here is the (now) traditional step by step:

I don’t know if you have seen it but I also made a video linked to the work of this skirt. I don’t present you all the work on the skirt but you can learn there how to sew a placket piece! If you are interested you can see it here!

And I am sure you are here for that so here is the result of the pattern and my sewing time!

Do you like it? Would you like to have the same?

On those questions, I’m going back to my sewing machine for other projects! I have to prepare new things for our next appointments! See you soon dear readers and take care!

Cheers my Dears,
