Her post about the pattern: The Ginger Spice Skirt
What kind of fabric did you use? Denim with a small, white flower print bought from Montmartre in
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I have a guilty secret – a fondness for novelty denim! So that personal tick was definitely reflected in the making of this pattern. I lined the skirt in navy crepe de chine, so that this could be a year-round make.
What thoughts do you have about the project? The Ginger skirt is unbelievably flattering. It’s like someone has cast a spell! I made version 3, cut on the bias. A Fashionable Stitch’s tutorial on inserting an invisible zip into bias cut fabric was extremely helpful. I want to make several more Ginger skirts. I can just see this in a solid colour, heavy linen – something that looks fabulous creased!
