Alright guys, this is going to be a quick post. My Clemence skirt from Love At First Stitch is done! I really wanted this skirt in a nice blue chambray and I am so glad I found the fabric for it. I am very pleased with how it turned out.
This is seriously a great style for me. I love full gathered skirts. They are easy to make and are very flattering. I will definitely be making more of these.
This was my first time making french seams and I have to say I love them! They add such a professional look to the inside of the garment. Plus, they are super durable making the garment last longer. I think this is going to be my preferred method for seam finishing when possible until I get a serger.
Look at that! as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. I love french seams!
- I followed the instructions for making the Clemence skirt in Love At First Stitch.
- I originally made my waistband a bit too big so I adjusted that when installing the zipper.
- I used french seams for the side seams.
- I tapered in just a bit at the top of the waistband to make it more snug
In the future I am going to try to make the waistband a bit smaller and more snug fitting, but other than that I wouldn’t change anything else. This is a great staple skirt and it is going to make a great addition to my capsule wardrobe!
And P.S. if you are reading this, I just want you to know that I recently updated my sets in Polyvore for my silhouettes, and I went ahead and updated that older blog post to reflect that. The overall look of the silhouettes is still the same its just that I had been searching around Polyvore more recently and have found garments that better reflect those silhouettes to me, and the perfectionist in me just had to update them.
I know I’m crazy! But that seriously is the way I am. If something is bugging me and on my mind, I have to fix it or it will just continue to bother me.
