Congratulations to everyone who has made it this far! You’ve finished up your Maple Skirt and are ready to show it off. Simple share it in the facebook group with the hashtag #maplesewalong before September 13 to be entered to win $40 to L’Oiseau Fabrics and a Gracious Threads prize pack.
Our last inspirational blogger this week is Tonya from Sewn of a Stitch. She’s a brand new blogger so I’d love if you headed over and gave her a comment!
Now it is finally my turn to share some sewing! This is the skirt I’ve been working on all week.
It is sewn from a wool blend fabric that you helped me pick out during our video chat. It was a bit more difficult to work with than I anticipated since it was very ‘spongy’ and unstable but it hangs very well and overall I’m happy with the results.
I paired the skirt with my Gracious Threads Rainbow Tee, view A. I love the understated cut with the cap sleeves and the fold over elastic trim. With only 2 pattern pieces and 6 pages to tape, this tee can be sewn up in about 15 minutes and is a great wardrobe staple. I recycled one of my own shirts for the fabric.
Thank you ever so much to everyone who participated. Next week the winner will be announced!
