Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Chiffon Maxi Skirt #2- with liner

Try #2 at a chiffon skirt. I made the blue one first but I needed a lining and I thought I would extend the waistband just an inch to let the skirt sit a little lower where I like things to sit on my hips. Because the front and back panels are gathered, I could adjust the gathers not add more bulk but have it sit on my hips.

Again used the same simplicity pattern again. I am a whiz at this pattern!

Here is my cut chiffon and a cream colored satin-like material for the liner. I cut the panels only for the skirt, I left the yoke with the pink chiffon. Since I used white interfacing it was close enough in color. I didn't need to add the lining with the interfacing. 

I did the pattern like normal. I sewed the lining separate from the chiffon. I attached them together while sewing to band. 


I serged off the excess material of course! I love my serger!

I also sewed the sides too. I don't know if this was the smartest step b/c I had issues with zipper. LOL! Also I realized I could not overlap the waist. 

I used a regular zipper (not an invisible one). Here's an interesting fact about myself I can put in an invisible zipper with my eyes closed and instantly. I can not do a regular zipper, this took a long time. Probably longer than what it took for me sew the skirt together. Stupid. 

But I made it work and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how the skirt turned out. The lining was great. It sits at the right spot. The length is perfect. OMG it is just perfect




I consider this a win for me! I can't wait to wear it, I tried to pair it with a sweater in hopes I could wear it soon to work.

xoxo,
Lauren
