Syrah maxi skirt for a shorty
Miss Crayola Creepy 5:00 AM Completed project
My husband was in Vegas a couple of months ago and I took advantage of some uninterrupted sewing time and made this Syrah skirt by Baste and Gather. The pattern is super cute, quick to sew, and a great fit. I'm giving the pdf cutting and taping situation an A+ because everything lined up perfectly, no wonky taping skills were even needed on my part. High five!
main fabric from Michael Levine, so I wanted to get the slip fabric from there too. The polyester spandex lining I ended up purchasing wasn't exactly what Lauren recommended, but at $4 a yard I figured it was a risk I could afford. Luckily, it worked great.
P.S. This pattern also rules because it's an elastic free waist. Super rad. I think I'm going to size down for my next version though because I prefer a tighter fit. Other than that, I'm stoked on this skirt.
The top is a cropped Briar t-shirt made from the scraps I had left over from the maxi skirt I made last year. There was barely enough fabric to make the shirt and cutting it out was an adventure, but in the end it all worked out. Unfortunately, there was a small hole in the fabric and I didn't notice it until I was almost done sewing :( It's on the back shoulder and isn't super noticeable, but since I know it's there I feel self conscious about it.
Just chillin with some dog hair on my shirt.
I've probably made Briar five or six times at this point, so I don't have any new insight into the pattern. However, this was my first time making the cropped version. I've never worn a shirt this short and it has taken some getting used to, but I do like how it looks with a high waisted skirt. I'll probably make another one at some point in the future.
Have any of you made Syrah yet? And do you like drinking Syrah? Because I do.
