I’ve finished my first two SWAP items.
Option #1 has:
– 6 tops
– 4 bottoms
– 1 of your choice.
2 garments may be purchased or previously sewn.
1 will be a matched print or stripe.
1 will feature embroidery, beads or sashiko
1 will have buttons as the star feature.
My first swap was lining my purple haze skirt with a blue georgette. I’ve been wearing this skirt to work but it really needed lining so I’ve added it in. The fabric has a check in the weave and I’ve matched this at the side seams.
My second item is a black skirt with an embroidered hem edge.
I bought this fabric from Pitt Trading at least 2 years ago. The fabric was a remnant and I have been wanting to make this up for a while but I was stuck on how to get the edging around the whole skirt hem.
I recently brought a skirt that was very girlie and when I wore it, I realised that the feature was only on the front piece. The back was plain. This was a really simple idea so I’ve used it on this simple a-line skirt
I’ve overlocked the edges and used interfacing on the waistline, to give it stability.
