Kristen’s Project Runway - the skirt


Last week I bought ten meters of gingham for doing up the prototype of my sister’s wedding dress. Yesterday I had a long think about the skirt, reviewed my sketches and notes, made some more sketches, did a bit of measurement math and started cutting. This afternoon, I have a red checked wedding skirt. I also have a tripod-mounted sister torso.

I am enjoying this sewing so far because I don’t have to do any finishing or detail work - no zippers, no hems, just pins and magic marker. Phyllis will receive the pieces basted together so that she can undo them and use them as a pattern. For me, this is heaven! Of course that makes it a bit harder for Phyllis, but she has a lot of experience sewing clothing and I am sure she can work it out perfectly.

Woo Hoo! Phyllis has seen the original sketches and is looking forward to the wedding dress project.

Lovely - actually keeping it in gingham would be very cute. But not very weddingy.
