Multicolour Digital Print Poly Lightweight Jersey Skirt

Multicolour digital print poly lightweight jersey skirt

Aiste had a moderate case of P.S.F. (phobia of stretchy fabrics) which we said was irrational and she should get over it. So she did.

This is her first attempt at sewing jersey – possibly not the easiest of choices but The Girl Did Good, the stitching is beautiful and we think this might be the start of something brilliant. Well done Aiste!

The jersey is a polyester and lycra (fine, slinky and super stretchy) which was possibly not what we recommend to beat P.S.F but the important thing is it is a fabric you really want to sew. The waist is elasticated. Nice and simple.

Leather look Ponte Jersey Jeans and Leopard Print T-Shirt

leopard print mock wrap t-shirt and ponte leather look jersey jeans

Rachel (with her whippet who knows she’s not really allowed in the shop) wearing black leather look ponte jeans (beautifully made) but not fitting brilliantly*… prototype #2 coming soon, and slinky dink leopard print poly jersey mock wrap t-shirt.

She does love a bit of Kitsch, does our Rach, and this is definitely in the kitsch camp!

The Jeans are butterick 5682 (not designed for jersey hence the fitting issues) and the top is Burda 6848.
