My beloved Lucinda Pencil Skirt has been reviewed by a couple more testers, and here are the results. Once again – I’m so grateful to have so helpful people around me. :)
MammaNene (owner of sergerpepper.blogspot), whom I got to know via Google+ have made a pinstriped version of it. I like it a lot! She’s an Italian craftswoman, and makes her own tutorials as well! It is she, who made me make my own Tailor’s ham!
I’ve made a typo… oops – it’s fixed now, though. :)
Pretty in pinstripes. :)
And look at that background! Wow. :D
I think I can do a better job in describing how to do the slit – I suppose it’s for the more advanced sewist. :P
I think she’s done a wonderful job! :)
It looks very classy – I think the pencil skirt could be awesome in neon colored pinstripes. Black or grey with neon green or pink or orange stripes. I’ve got a thing for the psychobilly style at the moment. :P
The pockets beautifully pleated. I really like these pockets myself. :) What do you think?
Her slit on the inside. It’s too bad it makes a little fold at the top, which makes it pull a bit on the outside. Otherwise very well done! (Again, I should get better at explaining. :P)
Invisible zipper, well done! :D
I’ve noticed that the zipper and the slit are a bit on the intermediate to advanced level, so I think I’ll do some more thorough tutorials on those – because when you get the hang of it, it looks really really great! Yay – tutorial-material. Perhaps I should just do a proper sew along on the whole skirt. Anyone want to join? If there’s interest in it, I’ll do it proper. :D
My dear Robyn Thomas did her Lucinda Pencil Skirt and sent me pictures as well, so here are more pictures of the Pencil Skirt, made by her:
I love the polka dot fabric – I’ve considered polka dots myself! :)
She’s done a beautiful job, and the skirt is beautifully snug. :) Don’t you think it looks good?
Practical pockets. :D
It takes your woman (or man) to sew straight lines!
An invisible zipper. I think it could look a bit cool with a visible metal zipper as well – perhaps in a contrasting color? Uuh – I’m getting ideas. :P
Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much, Robyn and MammaNene for your support and time and words and help! All the good stuff! :D
I tried to participate in a Pencil Skirt Challenge, which was due the 1st of July, but I didn’t make it, due to real life – but I am still planning on doing another pencil skirt (love ‘em!), and post pictures. I am thinking something with application or painted stuff. :) I like skulls… or monsters… or lips, or bows… oh, so many ideas, and so little time.
Once again – life for me is all about working at the fabric store at the moment – until my departure for Greenland the 26th of July, where I will stay until the 9th of August. After that I’ll only have a couple of days a week at the fabric store, and I SHOULD be able to do some more creative work here. :P
I feel some rambling coming on, so I’ll end this picture post here. :P
I wish you a most wonderful weekend! <3
