Hey Peoples, its your girl Coco with another Sew Post. While summer is coming close an end and with fall approaching its time to start sewing my autumn wardrobe. I do need some solid pieces but if you know one thing about me fashion wise is that I love prints. The most lovely of prints in my opinion are Ankara fabric. Its in a nutshell a 6 yard 45 inch wide bolt of boldness, color and excitement. So these two outfits were from my early sewing days. My first pair of pants using McCalls M6514 and My first Pretty Girls Sew sew along project using Vogue Pattern V8788. This project I wanted something simplistic, comfortable and that doesn’t take all day to make. For those days when I don’t want to do any extreme projects I tend to go for simplistic patterns that contain 6 or less pattern pieces. For this project I decided I wanted to make a circle skirt using my Ankara fabric. Because of width of the fabric I wasn’t able to pull off a full circle skirt but I managed to do half circle skirt instead. For calculations and drafting I referred to my ever growing sewing reference library. A good online resource for doing a self drafted circle skirt is this cool circle skirt app. Making this skirt was fairly easy, beginner friendly and quick which makes this a perfect project for days I really don’t feel like spending hours upon hours sewing and pressing.
Until Next time. (Looking at that Pink and Green at the bottom right corner, definitely will be doing a post once I figure out what to do with it)
