As I was still busy with the yoga bags this week, I have only been working on my scrap skirt in the Sewing Club on Friday and a little bit afterwards at home. So far, not so good.
I have to say, it seems to be turning out a little bit different from what I would have wanted. The godets might be too small. And too short. Especially as I haven’t even done the hem yet.
I think I pictured something more A-liny in total but with the godets showing a bit. And I should have done 6 panels instead of 8. I planned 8 as initially I wanted the corduroy lines in the bias, so they meet at the seam and do a bit of a zig zag. But I did not have quite enough fabric to do that and it is such a fine corduroy that it would not have shown anyway. So I cut it straight. And now that central seam looks a bit silly.
Would have been good to make a calico version of this new design. Never mind. I am sure it will not look too bad, just not as I wanted. And I have definitely learned something.
On a brighter note: Don’t forget the yoga bag give away. If you don’t do yoga, don’t worry. The bag doesn’t know that. Just use it as a knitting bag 🙂
Oh and I have also finished the second bag for the introductory offer on etsy. And I have made a few other ones which are already listed in the shop.
Hallo Ursula, ich finde es super ,dass ich jetzt jede Woche deine Fortschritte mitverfolgen kann. Die Yogatasche ist toll, ich habe mir im Internet andere angeschaut die sind alle 0/8/15.
Wünsche euch ein schönes Wochenende Ulli
Vielen Dank! Ich hab aber auch immer eine gute Designhilfe, die mit Kommentaren nicht spart 🙂
Great Idea! i have so many scraps!!! But they have different texture and wheigt and I don’t know what to do with them!
Me too. This is why I set my self a challenge to post every Sunday about my scraps. I can only come up with ideas (or sit down and make something) if I have pressure. Those little godets are definitely a good idea but I think next time, I might only use one but this will be much longer. More like a pleat from the top.
To try this out I would need to buy fabric for the skirt around the scrap though 🙂
I stand by my previous comment about this skirt being wonderful. And thank you for teaching me a new word. (Godets.)
You are most welcome. I think it is a wonderful word and I am very proud of knowing it. I am clearly not only a sewing expert but thanks to all my years of studying French I can also pronounce it beautifully 🙂
