11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Elasticated Maxi Skirt on: March 17, 2014 12:45:43 PM
I've done a bit of reconstructing in the past and want to sew more of my own clothes. I have a serger and rather than get scared off by a pattern, I searched for some easy to do beginner tutorials on-line, I only had 1 metre or so of fabric in my stash so ended up looking at the elasticated maxi skirt tutorial. I browsed a few, dug through my stash and produced the summary skirt below.

Any other recommendations for easy sewing tutorials that could increase my skills are welcome

After three weeks without the internet we are moved and back online Cheesy

Loving the yellow and blue stars, that could very well be going on to my to do list, the colour combo is so striking with the white background.

What a stunning collection we have in the gallery! Smiley

These are looking oh so awesome, it's such a joy to come home and sneak a peak at the new ones that  have been posted.

This is just to advise I have no internet connection from 9th Sept - 20th whilst we move and await being re-set up! However, if I get a chance at work of course I'll log on, how could one resist, it would certainly be rude not to!

I am really loving the modern strings

So I'm really pleased all my blocks have now been confirmed received. I've had a peek in the gallery after a very busy week, I am just loving Donniesgirl's Lone starburst, just goes to show no matter how many fabrics you can cram in a block they will always turn out super awesome! Even using prints it doesn't detract, I just love it.

Craolmb - the crane block, is that applique or some kind or origami quilting, it looks so precise? I also really love your stars you've added, especially the green one. Modern strings, just WOW I need to make myself one of these, what a great way to use scraps and not look like you've used scraps!

YAY EllaRain has posted some for my quilt, how exciting! I love there is some blue in it, they can work for both boy and girl Cheesy The first one is genius putting same fabric each side, I'd never think to do it but it pulls the block together so well.

Sloth003, I have fallen in love with them all, I really can't pick. That dog is way cute though!

YAY Melladh has also posted some of mine, hip hip hooray I just want to piece it together right now!

Can't wait to see the Garden Fence greens together, and the xmas quilts, they made me very excited too!

Now my husband has told me to stop squealing and join him so I think I will and spy again tomorrow! Happy sewing everyone

Oh wow so many more in the gallery. I was thinking the same as EllaRain with the paintbox blocks but bundled together like that just on the screen you can see how it can be such an inviting, proper homely quilt and just so striking.

I really love your star blocks danynn, especially the morning star, those colours all just pop together and with the stripe it is one of my fav's so far. They also look just perfect and I doub't I'd even attempt the Northumberland star now I've seen yours! It's nice to see a block with such similar colour work so well as I'm used to contrasting and matching so something I'll think about doing in the future.

OMG carolmb, that panda is just fabulous, I would love a quilt of those in all different colours, pop art style!

Wow donniesgirl, that block looks absolutely amazing, the colours blend so smoothly, you must have one hell of a stash and the pateince of a Saint! Smiley

Also really loving all the paintbox blocks that have appeared since I last had a peek, they are such rich colours, I think that's one on my to do list now

I've posted my last blocks up for Fontiua which will be sent Tues as I can never get a lunch break on a Monday.

Can't believe I'm all done, but so pleased I've done it in time before moving in Sept, now I'm just going to be board stalking Cheesy

carolmb, I love that koi, that is amazing, is that all pieced together? It looks so intricate. I also just love your hunter stars, they are just so perfect.

Thanks for all the comments, The braid I was worried about because when I sewed the white triangles on it almost appeared to be curving but it came out just fine, maybe a trick of the eye or it was late, I've no idea. I did less double stitching but the odd time i forgot! I guess it's a habit that will take a while to shift!

And I am just itching to see the celtic twist top come together, they are all just fab blocks, the contrast looks stunning

Nothing like some motherly love to sort out the nerves carolmb Smiley

I could do with some mum attention, I just ran out of white cotton and she lives over an hour away! So just the one uploaded for Fotunia today, I'll be heading to the shops to address this situation tomorrow but I fear it will work out worse for the bank balance! lol
