Well, now we continue with our Sew Over It Work to Weekend capsule with the bottoms! First up is the Kate Skirt. This pattern again comes as a dress, top or skirt. I decided to make the skirt version for this capsule because I needed another bottom to go with my tops! I am so pleased with how this skirt turned out! It also really makes me want to do the dress next - maybe for Spring.
This skirt is a midi length 1/2 or maybe 3/4 circle skirt. I made it using a navy wool crepe from my stash and it is such a wardrobe building block! The most interesting and fun feature of this little number is the slits that are in the front and back seams.
Here are the details of my alterations:
I sewed a size 12 and graded to a 14 at the waist
I took off 4” of the length
This was a very simple and quick little make. I love not only how great it works with this little capsule, but also how great it is going to integrate into my Fall/Winter closet as a whole!
I think that’s about all there to say about this little work horse. Up next, the pants for this capsule!
Until next time!
