Finished, skirt Simplicity 2215 in Lotta Jansdotter 'Echo' Dusted Plum Florine and I am very happy with it. I made the waist band wider but other wise unchanged from my test run version.
Nice details include irregular pleats- the sizes and directions vary, capacious pockets,
plus a contrast lining of mustard yellow- the egg dot print from Hoodies Morning Call range for Blank Quilting- I would love some more of this, if you know where I can find it please let me know!
I made the finished waistband an inch taller
and a pleated and frayed fringe edge on the hem. It makes me feel like a lady, I have already ordered another print in navy so maybe I repeat this one, or maybe pastures new. If you like the hem I have written a tutorial telling you how to do it here.
Busy week this week, Candy Cane paper pieced pattern will go on sale Thursday and there is a lot going on at home too, award evening thing with Lula, Ikea delivery, more kitchen fitting and I had 10 head injections yesterday- some weeks seem to pack a month's activity into 7 days.
(**edited to add**)
I have these injections every 6 months to help prevent migraine- I am fine, i don't mind needles at all, it is just a lot in one go and it makes head/neck sore for a while, it is worth it.
And if you fancy the skirt pattern, it is relatively easy but there is a side concealed zipper which combines with the pocket- hmm, quite tricky that bit, otherwise OK. If you haven't made a skirt before, I fully recommend Anna's recent sew-a-long for a similar style which is a great first skirt project.
