Another finished object that is part of my SWAP! This was not all plain sailing but I really love the result. This is my Grainline Moss Skirt in Grey needlecord I picked up in my local fabric shop.
My wearable muslin for this really depressed me but I'm glad I did it. It was way too tight so I cut two sizes up this time. But the waistband is a bit roomy. Its a really ingenious pattern and after the first go it only took me a couple of hours to whip up.
The creases are from sitting down but they don't appear when Its first worn. I really loved the back and no gaping! The yoke confused me the first time but I don't think I transferred the markings.
I've decided to start roughly costing my projects this year. Everything in the stash before January counts as free fabric.
Fabric : £20 of Grey Needlecord
Notions: Metal Jean Zipper, Thread and Button £4
Total: £24 Which I think is perfectly acceptable as I would have bought something similar from GAP for a lot more money and would probably have had to compromise on fit.
Wearability: I would give this a really high score on the wearability scale. Grey is a fab neutral and it goes with almost every colour in my wardrobe!
