Thursday, July 19, 2012 hand stitching

Using my go-to pattern for making a straight winter skirt New Look 6843 I lined the skirt by using the bagging method. I have used this pattern many times before, ignoring the waistband and instead stabilising the waistline with stay stitching and adding a lining.

The zip enclosed by the lining

Lining and skirt sewn together at the hem so need for hand stitching the hem.  (Note the Gucci lining! Bought from astratex and kept in my stash for a couple of years)

The outside view: a mint green Alannah Hill winter weight fabric bought from Clear It in Brunswick St. Fitzroy last winter.
