Skirt & Shirt---NL6130 + M6035
This is going to be a simple post. I sewed the skirt pattern of Newlook 6130 in a ponte knit fabric. This fabric is soft, I just love it.
1.Cut size 14 and graded up to 16 from hip down.
2. Added a 0.5" wedge at the hip and lengthened by 2",
3. Didn't put the zipper but added an elastic to the waist (no didn't make an elastic casing as shown below). I used the zig-zag function of the machine to sew the elastic and the waist together.
The shirt was made last year or early this year but didn't review it because it has already been reviewed here and here. For this version, I used black cotton voile.
All pictures were taken after a long day wear ..... so the wrinkles
Sewn on elastic
It's getting so cold here in Calgary, the temp this morning was -6 celsius but presently at -3 and partly cloudy. What's the weather like in your area???..... Are you feeling it yet????? Whatever it is, enjoy every moment :)
