Minty Green Gabriola

I've made a Gabriola skirt for summer! It is quite lovely to wear a maxi skirt for the summer. The fabric comes from my store, and has big patterned flowers. Flowers are fuchsia, on a pale mint green background. Somewhat tricky to match but I do like it a lot!

If you want to buy the fabric you can do that here, and if you want to buy the pattern you can do that here.

Good: I am very happy with the results, I didn't make a muslin first but I did grade it between the sizes since I don't have a pear shaped figure like all of the Sewaholic patterns are drafter for. If you also need some instructions how to grade between the sizes, especially the upper panel part can be tricky, you can find a good tutorial for that on Sewaholics own blog. I also shortened the pattern quite a bit, as I always have to do since I'm only 157 cm tall.

Bad: Nothing really bad actually, I had to take it in about 4 cm even though I walked through the sizes. For the next one I think I'll shorten it about 1-2 cm more. And again, like with the pretty Hollyburn skirt, I can not understand why the instructions call for that simple zipper insertion? A lapped zipper is much more beautiful! I really recommend putting some more effort into the zipper.

Best: My stitches for the hook and eyes! Precious!

Lately I've put some more effort into translating my store and adding information about my products in other languages in Swedish. Sweden is my biggest market, but other countries are finding me and I am overly excited over that! I love it! So please, visit my store, if not to buy, but to have a look around. If there's any questions or products that you'd love to see in my store, send me an E-Mail.
