The Heart skirt, a Valentine Pin Up Pattern
A late happy Valentines day to all! I've finally made up a skirt from my first ever graded pattern. It's a super simple and pretty straightforward pattern to make but I really love the result. I felt both sexy and super comfortable wearing it out yesterday witch to me is the sign of a good garment, beauty without pain.
This pattern is a waist high narrow pencil skirt with back godet witch extends to the front and a ruffled detailed finish. It also features a big heart stitched on your back. This pattern is meant to be executed in stretch fabrics with some body to them for the skirt pieces and a lighter fabric if available for the ruffle. You could also just double up the skirt using two pattern pieces each of lighter fabric, witch I did on my original skirt for a friend, but this uses more fabric off course. Please use stretch fabrics that will allow 3 cm stretch per 10 cm of fabric.
I've paired the skirt with the secretary blouse pattern I reviewed a few posts back. I think they look very good together. If you are interested in the blouse pattern as well check out my 'my patterns' page at the top.
