Easy Sew Work Skirt

I am happy to announce that I will be starting a new full time job soon. It has been a long time coming and I am quite relieved! However it does mean that I will be spending a lot less time doing the things I love. I am hoping to be able to cram knitting, sewing and bag making into evenings and weekends, it is such an important part of who I am these days that I really don’t think I could live without it!

I want to share a new work skirt I have made using a tutorial from “So sew easy- Making a Pencil skirt Sloper” I have always been a knitter first but after having finally taught myself to use the overlocker (that’s been sitting in the corner for 2 years) I thought it was about time to take on some simple sewing. I am certain that this will be the first project of many as it is so satisfying to make something that fits perfectly, and in a fraction of the time of a knitting project.

Plus I will certainly enjoy wearing this on my first day!

I used the basic pattern technique in the tutorial and I added a leather waistband, invisible zip, small split and hand sewn invisible hemline. Fits like a dream. Give it a go! xx
