All this sewing is exhausting, I tell ya. I wanted to take it easy today, so KCWC day #3 = me being lazy. I did some hand stitching on my School Days Coat (almost finished!) and made a fall Lazy Days skirt.
The skirt is a free pattern from Oliver + S. I’ve made loads of them – they’re so quick and easy, and really satisfying for 30 minutes of work.
Yep, it’s my same old standby gray chambray.
I found this chevron ribbon months ago at Fabric Depot. Perfect for skirt hems if you ask me.
Instead of one seam down the back I opted for two side seams – I pressed my seam allowances open and top stitched either side of the seam with thread to match the ribbon. Kind of subtle. Actually, kind of not that visible at all. Oh well.
I also added a little piece of ribbon to the waistband to mark the back of the skirt.
I’m not usually much for pinks and purples, but for some reason the purple version of this ribbon was my favorite. Looks nice with the lavender.
After scooping the little pieces up off the ground, she asked if we could go home and put them in a vase.
Then she sat back and admired her work.
