pleats on pleats

On a quiet Sunday morning, Bobbin and Ink hosted a swap in Sydney. Laura of Bobbin and Ink is such a great host and on the day, it was really fun to see her pick up at least one pattern on the day.

Susan from measuretwicecutonce handed me the fabric above and said, ‘I saw this fabric and thought this would suit you.’ I said thank you and decided to work this fabric into a skirt I could wear casually. What you see here is the wip skirt.

The front has diagonal and vertical pleats. I also sewed in pockets within the side seams.

I was able to use this lace invisible zipper that the lovely people from Prym gave me. 
The back of the skirt doesn’t have pleats so what you see here is the uninterrupted print.

As Summer is still sticking around, this is how I’ll be wearing this skirt on weekends.

It’s just way to hot to wear anything that is too fitting.

So let’s say for example, I have to wear it less casually, I think this could work.

Based on the back view, I’ll stick with leaving the blouse untucked. It’s still too hot and humid to be neat. 

I’m also still working with my physio to get my feet to walk properly hence no shoes worn in this blog post. The plan is I should be walking normally by the end of this month. Running will take a few more months to achieve.

What you see here are the fabrics I brought home from the swap.

This was just one table of sewing patterns at the swap.
The fabric table you see here was topped up with fabric throughout the morning.

I think you had to be a very strong person to only drop off fabric. I was not one of them.
