This weeks Challenge: Something Stretchy (Rejected)
Choosing which pattern to sew this week was the easy choice, the new Whirl Skirt is the newest member of the Flosstyle family and the obvious choice. The hard choice? Choosing which fabric to make it from. If you haven’t already go and check out all the amazing photos on the Whirl Skirt listing, the testers did a great job!
I couldn’t find anything in my stash to suit the vision in my head or the orange pompom trim I had decided I must use! After visiting the fabric shop (or 3 or 4..) I found this perfect fabric, it wasn’t quite as rainbow as I had planned but matched the pompoms exactly!
Cutting and sewing was a super quick process and the skirt was finished before I knew it. Next problem, I didn’t have a little girl to put it on for photos. I managed to convince Mr 3 that he would like to wear it for me to take a few quick snaps, but by the end I had to argue with him to take it off. He loved the way it swished when he danced and how it twirled when he spun around quickly!
Oh and it’s reversible.
What have you been sewing this week? I’d love for you to come and share in the Flosstyle Fair Group on Facebook.
