Every time I wear this me-made skirt, someone says 'Wow! where did you get that amazing skirt!' and I smugly say those immortal words ‘I made it myself’. Well now you can too.
This is a fab sewing kit which includes everything you need to make a glorious African cotton fabric long skirt, as shown in the pictures. Also available is the pattern only option on a separate listing which includes templates, instructions, interfacing and elastic.
Cecily Skirt is a simple to make, relaxed and comfortable style with an elasticated back waistband, flattering pleats at the front and two side pockets. It’s an easy pattern, quick to sew up and will give you a fabulous pop of colour this summer. Team up with a top, tee or cardi.
From the drop down menu, you can select a fabric and pattern kit which as well as the templates and instructions also includes enough genuine African wax cotton fabric* (112cm wide) for any size up to 20, inc a contrast fabric piece for the pocket, 50cm of elastic (38mm wide), a piece of fusible interfacing and a large format sturdy paper template and full instructions.
Also included is a French barrette to make a co ordinating hair accessory.
As well as the printed step by step instructions there are also step by step photos and a film tutorial on the online Sewgirl blog to help you with your Cecily skirt adventure.
Please note that the instructions are in English only with metric and imperial measurements.
There is a choice of genuine African Dutch Wax 100% cotton quality fabrics, please choose from the drop down button which you would like.
