Hello, everyone! Welcome to the finale Week 4 of our July Sew Serendipity Skirt Sew-Along. We have been making the “Tailored Skirt” from Kay Whitt’s book Sew Serendipity, so if you’re just joining me, catch up by first reading Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
This week, all that was left was to finish up by adding the bottom hem on the skirt. It was super simple – a nice, relaxing time at the machine after 2 more intensive weeks of construction!
Again, I really love that I chose this golden yellow for my contrast stitching. It pops on top of the prints and really accents the seams. I am a little annoyed that my machine did some funky stitching on my very top line, but it’s so minor you can’t really tell – especially when worn.
Don’t you love how a finished garment feels once all the details are in place? Here is my finished skirt pinned onto a mannequin – I had to draw it in quite a bit in the back to pin it, since the mannequin is skinny and I am, well, not. 😉 I’ll try to get a photo of myself in it soon and come back to update for you all.
I hope you had a great time sewing along with me! Be sure to share your finished skirts or adaptation ideas in the comments.
