So I wanted to take some pretty autumnal pics in my darkside skirt, but the UK weather isn't playing ball, so here's some indoor pics instead. Also my boyfriend hates being my photographer, and was not taking the process seriously, hence I got a million pics like these:
Anyway you get the idea!
This skirt was so easy to sew, and it has such a nice shape. Colette patterns seem to fit my lower half really well which is such a relief!!
The invisible zipper insertion was a bit tricky, and it isn't completely invisible. Not sure what I did wrong there, did I not sew close enough to the teeth? Also do you press the zipper teeth before sewing the zip in or not? I didn't as I didn't want to damage the zip so it got stuck or broke or something, and I thought pressing a hot iron onto plastic teeth might muck it up!
I already have my wine coloured corduroy ready to go to sew up another version of this pattern. I'm going to line that one, I wasn't certain how to do this but now Scruffy Badger has provided me with a quick how-to on her blog I am ready to go!
