What can you do? crack on & go for it of course. The pattern had top stitch detailing- but I rather fancied having a go at Flat Felt seams, from the fabulous- Couture Sewing Techniques book a-k-ay my bible; waited over 2 month for this book to arrive but boy it was soooo worth it.
Loved doing these; the top stitching tended to sink into the cord a bit, so specific top stitch thread was purchased.
Lining the skirt wasn't included in the pattern - but I do really like a skirt to be, inspired by Tilly Walnes from Tilly and the Buttons Autumn Maple Skirt I went for a bright cheery yellow
I forget just how many trial button holes I did- but I can honestly say though, buttonholes are my worst nightmare; after all the effort of creating a lovely wearable piece of clothing, it can be destroyed by one of these little blighter's- feel like a kid having to have lace-ups but rather have slip-ons!! 6 holes later "ta-da"
