1950's circle skirts
Started to create the circle skirt today after making the toile yesterday, luckily the toile went very well (apart from the length but that's fine it can be hemmed) so i could start making the skirt without changing anything. I cut out all the parts last night (double 1/4, single 1/4 and two half 1/4 and a waist band) so that i was ready to pin and stitch together today. spent three and a half hours at uni pinning and stitching but i didn't get it finished. Fiona is taking the skirt and jacket for a fitting tomorrow so i just need to attach the waist band and add the elastic and a few hook and eyes to keep the skirt closed up at the side.
