I said I wanted to make this. So I did. That’s the way I roll my friends.
I have been coveting black spotty moss skirt ever since I saw Jens way back here. However, to go to Ikea to purchase a small amount of fabric, inevitably ends up being a big trip to Ikea to buy storage baskets, straws, an egg flipper, salad bowl, wine glasses, cushion inserts, napkins, etc. I’m not the only one right??
Last week, with nothing planned and no ute to transport bikes for a ride, I suggested a short trip to Ikea under the pretense that Adele needed a new nightlight and side table. Naturally the kids were all for it. They love Smaland.
I slipped the fabric into our bag in no time and we were out in an hour with not too much damage to our bank balance.
To ensure some sense of balance in this skirt, I took some time cutting the fabric to ensure the dots line up. I did a great job at the front.
But was a little off on the back curved seam. I purchased a meter of fabric and with this fussy cutting, was left with just scraps and pieced waistband.
While I could have simply lengthened the skirt to ensure it was work friendly, I really like the bottom band and decided to play up the dots a little with it.
This is a straight size 4 Moss and probably my best constructed one to date. I used a slide at the waist to streamline the waistband closure. I’m really happy with this skirt. I also purchased some fabric markers from Ikea, just incase I felt like shading a few dots, but I think I’ll leave it for now.
I have so much more to show you! I’m on such a sewing roll now. So typical considering this is the last day of school holidays!!
