So, I chose a crazy bright fabric for a flimsy skimpy singlet and then tried to take photos of it in the middle of winter. Clearly this singlet is more appropriate for the warmer months. I haven't shown my bare legs and arms in so long; I feel I may as well be starkers in these photos! To help me feel better about this incredibly bright top I decided to make a very boring (in a good way!) grey Sew Loft Karina Knit Pencil Skirt as well. The Karina skirt is another free pattern: a fully lined knit skirt in sizes XS-XL.
First up the Diana Cami: The Diana Cami Pattern has just two pieces (a front and a back) which makes it an easy PDF print at home option. I graded my pattern from a size small at the bust to a medium waist/hips.
Onto the Karina skirt: I cut a straight size medium and followed the instructions precisely. They were simple, short and easy to follow. I made the skirt in approx half an hour, and it only took that long because I had double needle dramas. The Karina skirt only has one pattern piece which is used from the main fabric, the lining fabric and for the front and back skirt. I suppose this shows just how forgiving knit fabric is!
