Once upon a time, in a land far, far away lived a lovely sewist who spent her days frolicking amongst museum collection items and dreaming of a day when she would have a stunning yet simple skirt for work. She’d often sit at the top of the library and look down at all the well clothed fashionistas scurrying about their business looking stylish (and sometimes be secretly jealous of a particular pair of patent heeled mary-janes). Then one day she found her true love: the Jenny skirt pattern. A simple yet sassy pencil skirted number complete with variations. Oh the joy she felt!
- The high waist band. It’s like a free muffin top slayer. Win!
- How little fabric it needed. This is a perfect stash buster.
- The lining and binding. My serger broke so I improvised the finished edges with a crazy green bias binding. I love it! It’s like a secret watermelon underneath.
- I’d piece things together my own way. I had trouble with the directions after the clarity of Colette Patterns.
- Interface the waistband. This is something I missed due to the prior point.
- Try the suspender version. Why? Cause it looks awesome!
