'You Sew Girl' A-Line skirt.......

This week I finally had the chance to sew up Nikki's A-Line Skirt (You can buy yourself a copy here
 I made the shorter version in some beautiful Rachel Ashwell heavy weight fabric that I have had in my cupboard for about 6 years. I haven't dared cut into it before now!
 It is the perfect fit and feels really great on; perfect for us women with a defined waistline.
 Nikki's instructions are incredibly detailed and easy to read and follow, with helpful photos too. This pattern is one that I can see myself using over and over again.
'Thanks Nikki!', and Thanks Rachel Ashwell!
Kathryn. xx

I love seeing this skirt made up - I bought the pattern myself about a month ago and am saving it for January when I'm going to have a big skirt sewing session. However I did use the invisible zip instructions from the pattern to put a zip into a dress just last week. Thankyou for sharing!

Gorgeous Kathryn!
I'm looking forward to making some summery versions for myself. I didn't realise that Rachel Ashwell had a fabric line too.
