Hey y'all!! Happy Tuesday!! Hope you had a great weekend!! So tell me, have you ever cut out a project, lost interest so you put it to the side, completely forget about, cleaned up your sewing space, find it, fall in love with the fabric all over again, and sew it up?!! Anybody? Well, thats what happened to me!! I cut this skirt out LAST YEAR, found it all cut and ready to go last week!!! LOL!!
I'm so glad I found it because Simplicity 8211 is a winner. I know you're thinking, "Brittany, its just a gathered skirt". And yes, you're right my friend, it is a gathered skirt pattern. However, this pattern has an invisible zipper on the side with pockets!!! I usually prefer my zippers in the back, but I like mixing things up every now and then. Easy project to sew together, and its' only 4 pieces.
This fabric was bought from Joann, and I love it. Its a really nice lightweight chambray and my off the shoulder top matched up great with the gold arrows in the fabric.
I know sewing invisible zippers can be intimidating when you're first starting out so I can imagine you're probably thinking you're not ready to put one in the side seam with pockets yet. No worries, I got you covered! A sew with video will be up this week walking you through the steps!!
Hope you're enjoying your day, and I'll talk to you all in the next post!!
