You all didn’t think I had my feet up during the sew-along did you? I was sewing-along too! I wanted to go back to the bloggers favourite skirt, Simplicity 2451, because it is this skirt that many people write on their blogs “I made the short length so I didn’t have to think about the vent.” I have to admit that my first and second versions were short for that same reason.
I had just one meter of this poly check suiting so cutting out required not only some thrifty pattern piece placement but also a bit of mind bending to get the checks on the pocket facings, side seams, back seam and waistband to (mostly) match up.
Of course, if I wasn’t already known as Clipped Curves, I could have a new nom de plume ‘Lined Vent Lady’.
