I attempted another version of Simplicity 2451, but I totally failed with the fabric. The fabric was a stiff cotton before washing. After washing it was a wrinkled mess. Any wrinkles did not seem to want to be pressed out. Just moving in the skirt made it wrinkle. It wrinkles worst than any linen I have ever seen!
Anyway, here is the evidence.
To top it all off, it’s not even very flattering. Boo. I might still wear it. bwahahaha. Why right?
I am also still seeing some weirdness like extra pooling in the swayback area. I’ll get it right soon.
Anyway, I tried a kick pleat instead of a vent. I always feel self conscious in skirts with vents.
Burda 2007 09 #116. I really liked the tulip shape and wasn’t about to let the serger beat me! I made the largest size, 44, but it felt a little snug around the fullest part of my butt, but I added too much. I’ll get it right next time. I want a lot of these. They are comfy and have pockets. Woo hoo!
I think I somehow made the center pleat the wrong way. Hahaha. Whatever.
Ignore the bumps and bruises on my legs. I fell off the treadmill. Luckily, I only got bumps and bruises and managed to continue jogging a few minutes after I fell. Long story short, I tripped on too long shoe laces. Yes, that is how I bought the shoe, with laces that were too long.
It felt a little big. So I decided to make it a little smaller. The size fell between a 12 and 14 and it was almost perfect, except in the back. I have a little pooling above the butt. It has been corrected for the next version.
I really like the skirt. I think I will make more.
