Okay, I swear, I still have plans to sew Butterick Retro â€™52 B4790 before Spring settles in. BUT FIRST… I finally found the black, stretchy twill-like fabric that Iâ€™ve been looking for to make into one of the knee-length skirt options of Simplicity 5259. Now, while this might be easy-peasy for some of you sewers and seamstresses* out there, itâ€™s still a bit of an endeavor for me. I only have two completed skirts under my belt, uh, no pun intended, and this will be the first one that I donâ€™t plan to shortcut, and will actually use the interfacing on.
Once Iâ€™m done with the skirt, wouldnâ€™t those capris look sweet in a red-and-white gingham, with patch pockets?
*I was going to make a joke about seamsters, but it turns out to be an actual, though archaic, word for a tailor.
