Do you know Anne from Mercury handmade? She has a Veronica wiggle skirt pattern drafting tutorial for free on her blog and I’ve enjoyed using it to make these two work skirts. I’m getting more comfortable with this new skill.
I used my pencil skirt pattern and made the drafting changes Anne suggested. I’ve used satin bias on the pocket to show the pocket lines without being too loud.
After taking a deep breath, the pocket drafting changes were easy to do and I’ve now worn this skirt and the skirt below to work weekly. I’m a sucker for wearing new clothes when I have the time to make them.
And the tops are both Kwik Sew 3790. More about my now favourite winter top pattern shortly. I just wanted to make sure Anne got to see how I was able to replicate her Veronica Wiggle skirts. Anne shares her instructions free on her blog. The girls at work love this skirt too.
Have a look at Anne’s Rock chick version. The vintage inspired Veronica is the style that sold me on this pattern. The Barbara skirt is really versatile.
Modern Love Bendigo meetup question
On the weekend I had a good question about this meetup.
Q: Do you have to be a blogger to come?
A: Any sewer who is interested in seeing fashion from fashion houses can join in.
Go to TJ’s blog and let us know you’re joining in. Having a blog is a nice to have, not a must have.
Studying is just about over and sewing is now peeking over the horizon.
