Given my history with the Grainline Studio Moss Skirt I know to cut a size 8. Unlike my denim Moss skirt, I want this version to be super mini so I'll leave off the hem band. I have limited fabric so I might need to cut all facings and innards in an alternate fabric, but I hope to have enough fabric left over to create belt loops. I plan to use the same process I learnt making Tim's Jedediah Shorts to add the loops. I will also need to line or underline the skirt to give it a bit more structure. I will probably go with a dark sturdy fabric perhaps with some silkiness so I can wear it with thick tights in winter. Any suggestions? I really hope I can do this beautiful fabric justice.
I enjoy writing about sewing plans and progress as well as finished products. My aim for this blog was to write about my "learning to sew journey" not just the Ta-Da! pictures. I really enjoy reading about others sewing plants, too. I would love to know if others find progress/planning posts interesting, useful or a complete bore?
