Yet another McCall's 3830 - Leaves print skirt

As promised, the straight skirt made to go with my new green top. This skirt pattern is a favorite because the fit is great and it's super easy to make up. I took out the back seam and put the invisible zipper on the left side.

The fabric is a stretch sateen bought from JoAnn's. I just loved the colors in it.

I sew bias tape along the facing edge and the side seams. I use sew the non zipper side seam as a french seam, but realized this would be hard to alter if I were to go up or down a size. I'm still working on loosing that 8 pounds I gained around Christmas of last year, so need to be able to take it in.

Up next is a skirt from February's Burda magazine, 107 B. I'm having a few issues with its unflattering wide pleats. Not sure why I loved this skirt in the magazine so much...

  7. Fabulous outfit! I was in my closet today and realized that I need more "outfits". Nothing goes with anything! The bright side - an excuse to sew!

  9. If you have 8 pounds to loose, I don't know where they are! Your skirt looks great with your new green top. Don't you love stretch sateen? I bought some for a skirt and I can't wait to sew it up.

  16. Great combo. So glad you persevered on the top. It looks great with the skirt. As for the Burda skirt, it looks like you have to wafer thin to wear that style. And you're thin! So you'll be able to pull it off. Go for it.
