You may or may not remember this project. (Truth be told, I really don't blame you if you forgot, but to refresh your memory, you can read more about this project: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.)
Anyway, this project got dusted off recently, to head towards completion. The picture above shows the first bottom piece draft. I took that off and redrafted the last tier of the skirt since I didn't like how it hung.
This convoluted mess of paper is from me working on the redraft.
This is the test sample with the new piece on the bottom. I am much more satisfied with the performance, although I may reduce the total width of the piece, since it looks like there is a little more gathering with that piece than the previous ones. The next step will be to do a complete test of the pattern and actually make a skirt out of it. :)
So how am I doing?
Does my idea work aesthetically?
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
