Andrea @ This Knitted Life

Wow. Hand sewing. The skirt came out great. Next up for your sewing projects?


That's gorgeous! I have a couple of her books, but I haven't gotten into appliqueing yet, or doing cutouts. Are you going to make another?


I absolutely will make more!


what a treasure.....I've just signed up for one of Natalie's classes and CAN'T WAIT!!! :)


Looks great! I suppose it's like knitting in some ways - it's fun to wear what you make!


Wow! That looks like it was a whole lot of work. But it turned out fantastic. I am totally coveting your skirt. Gorgeous.


Beautiful! I love your choice of fabrics... especially the bottom layer.


Congrats on a beautiful project! I admire AC from afar. I know my limitations! :-)


That skirt is beautiful! I wished I could sew, or find that skirt in a store :)


So beautiful. Totally on my list of Someday Projects. Did you buy one of their kits, or did you go whole hog and do the stenciling, etc, from scratch?


This is beyond beautiful! I have not taken in the Kool-Aid just yet, but your skirt has me jumping to go! Was this a pattern from one of the Alabama books, or did you use the technique on your own pattern? Of all the finished projects on the web, this one truly knocks it out of the ballpark! Can you also please tell me the type of fabric you used - I just love everything about it! Many thanks for sharing, and congrats on an exquisite job!


This skirt was a kit from the web site. It's the bloomers skirt. I chose the fabric, however. The under fabric is organic jersey cotton in Slate and the top is medium weight cotton in Light Grey. I hope this helps! The pattern can also be found in the Alabama Studio Sewing Patterns book. It is called the Swing Skirt.

I have also hand-sewn a couple tops and another skirt that weren't from a kit. These are beautiful but this particular skirt is really really cool!
