I had an event to attend a few weeks ago and I always love to wear something eye catching when I'm going to be in front of a lot of people. I am my BEST advertistment lol.
I was on pinterest and saw this top I INSTANTLY got off the site and literally tore my studio apart because I KNEW I had that fabric in my stash.
I was going to make a top but decided I would get more wear out of a skirt:
I absolutely LOVED the colors in this one. This was my first time working with African Wax and I found it to be a tad bit slippery even when it was pinned. Maybe it was just me but this stuff MOVED lol
It was fun to work with and I've already made plans for the rest of it that I have in my stash lol. Y'all know how I get. The colors just sold me. You know I love me some color. I wanted it to be a little more than just a "pencil" skirt so I thought a peplum version would be spot on. It was.
Here is a picture of me all set up and ready to go. I also had a few of my clients model the items that I made for them. That was fun. If you follow me on instagram you've already seen all of this lol.
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: 8-18 I cut the 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't even look at them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the peplum style.
Fabric Used: African Wax Cotton
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is such a great skirt pattern to have, I probably will sew it again.
Conclusion:Great pattern! Pick it up if you like this style.
