Project : Vogue Pattern 7880 Skirt

Project Details

Pattern :
Vogue 7880 View C

Fabric: Tobacco Solibati Linen

No modifications.One of the best Vogue skirt patterns, in the same genre as the Individualists/Attitudes range.
Multiple pattern pieces , that needs careful marking and tagging as the pieces all looked similar.
Top portion is lined , I used irridescent tobacco/blue acetate /rayon lining fabrics.
Not easy to work out the fit until the skirt is practically done.
Really bad attempt at inserting a lapped zipper , which was ripped out and replaced with an invisible one( sleek and streamlined)
Since my fabric is heavier ( but it soften and become drapey with wear ) I opted for the topstich/mitre edges at 15mm hem allowances .The hem treatment instructions is best suited for sheers and semi sheers.

One that will go into my must keep pattern collection.
