I’ve had this beautiful sequined wool blend knit in my stash for awhile. It’s one of those fabrics you can’t resist buying and then have no idea what to make with it. I know you know!
Northcote skirt to the rescue – I seriously love this pattern. The shape is beautiful and it’s a quick and easy sew. I plan on making a few more in lightweight knits for summer to wear with tanks and tees.
This went together very quickly in spite of the sequins. I pulled a wool jersey from my stash that was a near- perfect match and used it for the waistband.
I did add a lining. It just feels nice plus it makes the skirt flow so nicely over any lumps and bumps. This is a Japanese knit lining from Gorgeous Fabrics that is so light and silky. I stocked up on this but Ann still has a few yards left if you are interested. I don’t have many local resources so I like to stock up on things like this.
I used a 2” hem on the skirt and the lining to give it some weight. Im very happy with the way it turned out. That’s all for today. No more sewing this weekend as we are babysitting today and tomorrow is the Super Bowl but, hopefully, next week!
Ha, I just noticed my foot in the picture – sorry about that! 🙂
