It was really a most beautiful day and the bride looked stunning.
So now I have submitted a few assignments I have returned to the sewing machine for a days chilled out sewing.
It was a totally new experience for me sewing with suede - something I have never tried but I really enjoyed it. Yes it is not very forgiving - sew in the wrong place and the fabric lives to tell the tale but if you take it slow and steady it is fabulous!
I decided to make a wrap skirt done up with a button - when using a new fabric I thought I wouldn't try to tackle the zip! I didn't have a pattern so just free-handed some shapes and lay them together until I was happy.
If you want to give suede a try I would suggest getting leather needles as using them made a huge difference to the sewing experience. Other than it is much the same as usual just take it slow and steady!
So here it is ;
It is just an all round fun skirt - good to dress up and good to dress down.
I made the top too but more on that on another post!
Hope you're all having fun sewing
