Sewing fancy: Colette meringue skirt


My  Colette Sewing Handbook  arrived the other day and I thought I'll try making my own meringue skirt. The scallop edge is a lot easier than I thought, the only problem I encountered was accidentally cutting off some of the stitchings while grading the hem seams. I'll try not to be so clumsy next time. The fit was perfect, I didn't have to alter it in anyway, can definitely se myself sewing a couple more in the near future.

    1. Get it Lexi, I was really impressed, not only does it have great patterns (I love them all, except for one), it also go through all the sewing basics in a really easy to follow manner. It's great for any beginner or anyone who wants to brush up on their skills.

    1. Thanks Tania, it wasn't difficult at all, just need to be careful and not rush it. A mini tutorial is a great idea, I'll try and do one next time I make another one. x
