Lindy Petal skirt

Lindy Petal skirt

Last week, Kennis from Itch to Stitch, released a new free pattern. I was one of the testers.

It’s a figure flattering knit skirt. At first I wasn’t quite sure if I would like it. I don’t usually wear pieces like this, but then I remembered a “scuba-like” knit that was in my stash for a while, and thought that might be a perfect match.

It’s a really quick sew… REALLY quick! I did mine in under two hours, including cutting the fabric!

Because I was between sizes, I went one up, but it ended up being to big on me, so I had to redo the whole skirt a size lower (no problem! As I said veeery quick sew!). If the same happens to you, my advise is to go for the smaller size. Since it’s a knit, it will have enough stretch to accommodate your hip size. If you need to blend sizes, you can read about it in the instructions, as well.Petal skirt-02I didn’t have enough fabric to match the stripes, so I went with different directions for the front and back. It turns out I really love this skirt (who knew?! ;D ).

    Gosto bastante da saia! Adoro teres feitos as riscas em sentidos contrarios!

      Obrigada Rita! A minha ideia era até que ficassem na diagonal, mas o retalho era pequeno, foi à conta!

    A saia fica-te mesmo bem e adoro o efeito das riscas, mesmo que não tenha sido intencional. Por vezes o não correr como tínhamos planeado, faz-nos ter outras ideias ainda melhores 😉

      Obrigada! É mesmo, às vezes temos que “abraçar” os defeitos! 😀

    Muitas vezes são mesmo os projetos mais simples que maos gostamos. Aconteceu-me à pouco com o vestido azul que fiz para a Gabriela.
