Crafty sew and sew in Dorset

Welcome to my world of craft!

Tulip skirt from sew over it


I feel the need to apologise now for the photos in this post. I’m so behind on blogging things I have made because I haven’t managed to get decent pictures that I resorted to the selfy stick I was given by my aunt at Christmas.
I have little need for a selfy stick in my life but then I thought about this blog and became very happy for my gift!!
Any way, back to the sewing……

I joined up to the sew over it pdf club a few months ago which gives you 10% discount and advanced access to monthly pdf pattern releases for just £5 a year, and you get to choose a free pdf pattern worth £7 when you join. I picked the tulip skirt as I have been looking at this for a while now.

In an attempt to make a more capsule and cohesive wardrobe (read plain and basic and not all patterned fabric) I decided I needed to make a few black and navy tops and bottoms(which I have, but not blogged….jeans, skirts, t shirts).
I am wearing my tilly and the buttons Agnes top with the skirt in these photos and really love being able to wear a whole me made outfit, coat included!


This is a really simple design skirt with pleats at the front and darts at the back.


The other great thing about this pattern is that it has pockets!


I made this skirt with black cotton blend suiting fabric from fabricland, so overall a pretty cheap skirt to put together in about 2 hours.
