Brown skirt in denim

This dark pic shows my latest skirt, it´s a copy from a Knipmode but I simply slashed my basic skirt pattern that originally was Burda 8890, it´s probably OOP.

Mette skirt

It has taken a long time to get this skirt finished, but since Paris my urge to sew has increased.
In Denmark there´s a fabricshop chain called stof2000 and they have their own patternline called "100 % homemade" the models have names in across stitch-kind-off-logotype so it took me a long time before I actually decided to try one of their patterns out. My choise was Mette

Mette is a six gore skirt with the backpanel devided into two to place a zipper in the back.
I bought the teal stretch corduroi with jeans in mind but changed my mind ( that´s why you have a stash, isn´t it? ) during part of the looong sewingtime I had teal lint all over the appartment

The skirt is nice a little heavy but looks good with boots and are easy to ride a bike wearing it. I actually liked the pattern so much that I made a second skirt a lot faster using parts of bad jeanstrial and leftover fabric. It´s not ready in this pic but has became a favourite since jeans go with everything.

I am now working on a brown jeansskirt inspired by a knipmode model and green jeans using the Jalie pattern but with a lot of changes some due to less stretch in my fabric som due to they don´t use my body to draft their patterns from...

Paris fabric shopping

No! I did not buy this, it´s the ugly fabric from the swap

This is also a ugly fabric that did not make it to the swap, gift from Annika

This one I love! It´s silk that I plan to use for a dress/tunic style. It has little purple accents in it that I don´t think the photo really shows

Jersey i meter in a square with border, a sleeveless top for summer

Cotton with both structure and print, a little retro, dress for summer or jacket and skirt

This is totally black good wool. i decided I was old enought for the basic black skirt. This will be enought for two

Cotton with structure and a little Odd Molly style of print, for a blouse

Cotton with a little elastan for a skirt dress. The almost dots are almost pink and has a retro feel to it!

I´m pleased...
