Hello and welcome to a new installment of the Stephanie Skirt sewalong!
Today I’ll be showing you the preparation of the pleats and how to insert a perfect and pucker-free invisible zipper at center back. I know that zippers, and in particular invisible zippers are still a source of stress for many sewists but they really don’t have to be!
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.
Welcome to the second part of the Stephanie Sewalong!
I hope that my previous post inspired you and help you pick your fabric! Remember that you only have until tomorrow to enjoy 20% off a selection of fabric from Selvedge and Bolts (check out the blog post for more details). Today we will start slowly by preparing the pattern and cutting fabric and the fusible interfacing.
To celebrate the re-release of the Stephanie Skirt with an improved size range and illustrated instructions, I am hosting Just Patterns’ very first sew-along! I hope that it can help beginner sewists to feel more confident and encourage more experienced makers to try new techniques. Don’t forget to grab your pattern in the shop and let’s start look at some inspiration to help you choose your fabric. I’m very happy to be collaborating with my friends Dibs, who just launched her online fabric store Selvedge and Bolts, and she is generously offering 20% a selection of fabric that would be amazing to sew Stephanie, check out the code at the bottom of this post!
Today I’m happy to show you the lovely versions sewn by our tester group for the extension of the Stephanie Skirt. Since we completely regraded the pattern, we tested across our entire new size range, from size 34 to 56. Let’s jump right in!
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.
The last quarter of the year just seem to have been on fast-forward. Life has been busy at Tidbits HQ! The main reason behind my silence is that I traveled to France for holidays (Yes, I saw the Dior exhibit and yes, it is absolutely amazing!!). Upon coming back to New York, I learned that I would be moving back to Haiti (on Thanksgiving weekend...) less than 2 months later. Things were hectic… I had to break my lease, sell all my furniture in New York, organize the shipment of the rest of my belongings aka the sewing room ;-), find a place to live in Haiti and start my new job!
