Yes, please! :)
Me, me, me:)
Yes, Marina. I would love to join this "sew-along" as well. Would you draft a pattern?
Great, Holly! And, yes, I will draft the pattern, but will also give you some choices available from pattern companies and show necessary adjustments. Whatever option you choose, we will draft the flounce together.
Oh, yes, that would definitely be fun.
yes yes and yes
Fabulous! Will follow!
I *just* read Fehr Trade's latest post about the November issue of Knipmode magazine, and it has a pattern for this exact skirt! Interesting.. http://www.fehrtrade.com/article/652/knipmode-november-2012
I was just about to post the same thing! I think the Knipmode one was inspired by a Burberry skirt.
Thanks, Neurula, Ingrid! I just read the Fehr Trade post - you are right! The Knipmode skirt is most likely inspired by the Burberry skirt, there are only a few subtle differences. Thanks for the tip
It's a great skirt, but not for my body, so I'll just watch.
I will be happy to have you as a watcher :) - we will draft a princess line pencil skirt as a foundation, so maybe this is something you can follow along as well. And thanks for being a frequent visitor and commenter here ;)
I would love to join a sew-along with you
I would love to!
Yes absolutely... Already have the fabric ;-) JJP
Sure. Why not. I'm sure I can find the fabric in my stash somewhere...I'll see if there's a Pattern Magic option that I can redraft for a skirt.
Yes please, I would love to make this skirt.
Oh yes please - it's lovely!
Definitely, i want that too.
Yes, please!Can't wait!
Indeed we should.
Ladies, this is s exciting - I am looking forward to it!
Inna, knowing you, this is the perfect skirt for you!
YES YES YES PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP!
It's not for my body, either, but I will read with great interest. I don't really care for the deep slit, and I think an exposed zipper is overkill, but that's just me.
This exposed zipper can be disputed, I agree. I think the idea was to make the skirt more street-appropriate. They also had a lace bomber jacket in the same collection. Interesting idea.
I'd love to make that dress with you and your readers Marina. Miss you :(
Fabulous fabric for the skirt, specially the frill of the skirt give it a unique a look, perfect for average body.Lovely to wear during autumn!!!Karen by Simonsen
Love the skirt, but not sure if it will be flattering on my figure... Still thinking about it!
we will make a muslin, so think about it :)
I'm in too. This will be fun!
I love the skirt, I'm in too.
I love this skirt. I'm in!
I am in as long as I can find time to sew.
me too...I think I already have the right fabric in stash! federica (from Italy)
how can you join this sew-along? I'd like to make this skirt!
Even though we are heading into summer in Australia, I'd love to join in and make this. Looking forward to it.
I would love to join in and make the skirt if it is still possible. I missed this post due to my power and internet being down for over a week after the storm.
Hi Marina,My postings keep on disappearing.I am in and would prefer the drafting before the holidays and make up afterwards. Have to send away for all my sewing needs; no stores in my area!!Thanks for sharing, it should be great fun.
Hi Marina: I admire you so very much. I would love to follow your sew along, but I will have to do it on my own. My reason is that I as a senior, have not yet learned to manuver through sites like patternview or blogs (don't have one yet) because I am techincally challenged.Your Idea for the tweed pencil skirt is so cool. I signed up to follow your blog, but not certain if that is what you do to be alerted daily when you post your lessons for the skirt tutorial...Otherwise, just wanted to say that your workmenship is awsome as well as absolutley beautiful. Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing your talents/blessing and being so giving. Much appreciated........
Hello MarinaI am so excited this will be my first sew along. I have not drafted a pattern and i am looking forward to learing how to draft a skirt of my own.
