More of my seasonal sewing exploits ... here are 2 skirts I drafted and made from 2 metres of lovely 100% wool suiting fabric. It was an absolute dream to work with, but very difficult to photograph when one is on one's own! Because it's wool, the fabric can be pre-shrunk by steaming it with the steam iron. Steaming after completion can also help with making the darts nice and smooth so that they are barely visible on the finished garment.
Now bear with me while I try to figure out how to draw a clear and concise diagram on Illustrator, so that I can show you the skirt block and how to make it ... or maybe the best thing is just do draw it and photograph the drawing!! I will be working on that over the next few days.
