This is the second completed item that I’ve made so far, ten more to go if I’m going to meet the challenge. I wanted to make a navy corduroy skirt after seeing Tilly’s red chunky corduroy grain-line. So got to work straight away. After making the pink ginger that I posted last week I was confident that the size was correct and set about cutting and assembling. Invisible zipper was not really a problem this time as I went straight to the video, no stubborn frustration for me this time.
I also have noticed that others were adding facing in different materials so I added a lovely purple facing at the waist. It a quilting weight cotton and has hydrangeas on it. I love the way it peeps over the top of the waist band. I think my next ginger will have piping along the bottom of the waistband.
Again a nice straightforward assembly which will look lovely in the Autumn with some knee high/ calf boots. Just need to find the perfect pair. Any ideas? This is also a practice skirt but definitely wearable. I wanted to check I liked the pattern and fit before cutting the gorgeous liberty corduroy I bought back in January.
