Stephanie Sewalong - Side in-seam pockets in french seams

Delphine (Sewing Tidbits)

Welcome back for the third part of the Stephanie Sewalong! In my previous posts, I covered inspiration and fabric choices and cutting the fabric, so it’s time to start sewing!

The updated version of the Stephanie Skirt pattern now includes fully illustrated step-by-step instructions. I decided to use alternative construction options so that it’s less redundant. If you follow the pattern instructions, the seams are simple and seam allowances are either serged (or zig-zagged) or bound. In this post, I’ll be showing you how to sew the side seams and the in-seam pockets with french seams.

Will 2019 be the year of slowing down?

Sewing Tidbits

Compared to previous years, 2018 was relatively calm for me. I didn't move across any ocean and I didn't birth any human!

Another take on the Stephanie Skirt

Delphine (Sewing Tidbits)

I'm slowly climbing out of the overwhelmed single working mom hole although I have to acknowledge that I may fall right back into it at any time. Life has a thing for intently proving me wrong every time I start feeling like things are under control. But before that happens, I'm trying to get as much sewing and photographing done! The skirt I am showing you today has been on my mind since November.

Inspiration for the Yasmeen Skirt

Sewing Tidbits

Its design lines celebrates women's curves in a way that we hope is reminiscent of the King of Cling, late Azzedine Alaïa. In this post, we will be sharing some ready-to-wear inspiration to help you select your fabric and style your finished skirt!

Introducing the Yasmeen Skirt Sewing Pattern!

Sewing Tidbits

We are so glad to release our fifth sewing pattern just before the end of the year, the Yasmeen Skirt! This skirt is one of the garments we absolutely wanted to release when we started Just Patterns. We love the shaped seam lines that enhance all curves in the right places and make it a super flattering option for when you need to dress up. With a Yasmeen in your handmade wardrobe, you are guaranteed a show-stopping outfit but with the versatility of a skirt rather than a dress.
