Hollyburn, round two
Miss Crayola Creepy 1:31 PM Completed projectSewaholic Hollyburn skirt and didn't care for it. Don't get me wrong, the pattern was great, I just wasn't into the long and high waisted skirt look on me. Fast forward to June 11, 2014 when Caroline posted her version of Hollyburn. I loved her fabric choice and the shorter version (View C) had a different feel to it than the long version I originally made (View A). Her post was perfect timing because I was headed down south for the Los Angeles Sewist Meetup a few days later.
The Fabric Store in Los Angeles. The right side feels almost like a flannel, but the wrong side doesn't have the same texture. Rochelle inspected it and said that it seems like a brushed cotton twill. Whatever it is, it was really nice to sew :)
Deer and Doe Plantain pattern. I've made and blogged about a couple now, so I don't have anything new to say, sorryyyyyy! The fabric is a black knit from Girl Charlee and I'm bummed to say that I'm not 100% impressed. After prewashing the fabric once (in cold water) the color faded quite a bit. In the photos it's not apparent (or is it? haha), but in person it's noticeable.
My awesome neighbor took these blog photos when she saw me outside messing around with my tripod. She took four total (I took the one of my hem and didn't post the other) which was perfect since I was exhausted after a whirlwind weekend and 8+ hours of travel time. Luke, Frankie (my pup), and I went on a quick trip to Oakland, but you'll hear more about that in my next post ;)
Overall, I'm really happy with my skirt and plan to make another in the future. Isn't it funny how you can dislike a look on yourself one day and months later end up liking it?
