Too big to too awesome!

Project Description

Name of Pattern A line skirt drafted from a skirt block What was your inspiration? I found a beautiful denim skirt at my local thrift shop with some lovely embroidery on the bottom. Problem is, it was a size 22! No problem when you know how to sew!! I bought it for $5 and took it home to my sewing machine. I ripped off the top band and used the bottom portion to make a lovely A-line skirt that really showcases the embroidery. The pattern was self-drafted from a skirt block. I added contrasting facings from some lovely floral cotton I had lying in my scraps drawer and finished it off with a lapped side zipper. Details of construction can be found at http://coutureacademic.wordpress.com. Yet another example of the power of being a sewista!!!
