I attempted Burdastyle Michelle skirt again. This time with a much thinner, white fabric (see failed Burdastyle Michelle skirt in wool). I also trimmed 1 cm from right and left sides of the pattern, as the first skirt I made was far too big even though it was the smallest available size 36. This version fits perfectly, at my waist, and is fully lined. I whipped out my overlocker (or serger) and made a very simple lining, even though I am yet to learn how to use an overlocker properly. I am enrolling in a course this month so I’m looking forward to being taught how to thread the damn thing! At the moment I can only use the machine to stitch white things, because it came threaded in that colour. Yes, I did look at the instructions, but it looks very complicated and I am too scared to break the intricate little parts of the machine. I’m really excited about the overlocker course, where I’ll learn how to do decorative edging, and make things with stretchy fabrics. Yes I am a total dork.
Oh, and yes, the shoes in the photo are indeed vintage BALLY. Love love love.
