The fabric for the skirt was purchased locally at Discount Fabric Warehouse. It is a cotton ripstop in a mushroom color. It was a dream to sew with. The Vogue instructions were crystal clear. This zipper application is the nicest one I have sewn so far. The skirt features topstitching, patch pockets blending into belt loops, back vent, front and back darts, and a blind hem. My sewing machine came with a blind hem foot. Glad I pulled out the instructions and figured out how to use it! I used a 2 3/4" hem instead of a 2 1/4" hem, which the pattern recommends.
Blind Hem & Back Vent:
Kwik Sew 3463 is a pattern for leggings and long tunic t-shirts. I used a navy blue gauze knit from FFC to make the t-shirt. I altered the arm piece to be more narrow and longer than it was originally drafted. This is a perfect transitional piece from summer to fall. I am wearing it with the striped tank from my previous post. Here are a few more mix and match outfits. Happy Sewing!
