Right before I threw my back out a couple of weeks ago I managed to test the new Linea A-line skirt from Wardrobe by me. My back is getting better but I must start taking better care of myself and work in some exercising time in between work and sewing. I hope that with brighter and longer days I’ll manage to keep up the motivation. But enough on that boring stuff, here is Linea!
The pattern has options for pockets, with or without a center seam at front and back, two lengths with a regular hem and a third one with a really cute flounce.
This is my one with pockets in the shorter length and without the center seams at front and back. If you do that you have to remember to cut out the center seam allowance. Sweater is store bought, I know shame on me!
This one is without pockets, also the shorter length but with the center seams. Its too bad my photos don’t show the structure the center seams give the skirt, I really like that on solid colour and a little heavier knit fabrics.
If you only have an hour but want to satisfy that sewing craving this is the right pattern. If you drop the pockets and cut your pieces on the fold the sewing is over and done with in no time at all. This one I paired with my Anna shirt.
At first I thought that the flounce wasn’t something I would like but then I started seeing other testers post pictures of theirs and I knew I was very very wrong! This one is in a light weight fabric and it will be a perfect summer skirt.
Just look at that lovely flounce. I cheated and did a rolled hem on my serger, so fast and easy.
