Loes Hinse Boot Skirt--Pictures!


I got home early enough to throw off my work outfit and throw on the skirt, so you can see what it looks like on me.

Also I took a couple of detail shots. The first shows why it would have been kind of useless to show it to you without a body. It doesn't look like much, does it?


The second shot shows the interior detail. Instead of a traditional lining, I underlined it with the poly charmeuse.


It was all done on the machine and serger except for the hem, which I did by hand while watching the final wild card game.

Because I shortened this version quite a bit, I lost some of the shaping that's built into the skirt. I fixed that on my pattern pieces, so the next one will be better. Oh yes, there will definitely be more of these. I grant this pattern TNT status on the basis of this first attempt!

I love your line about granting it TNT status based on the first attempt! I've got a few patterns that I knew I was going to make over and over again after the first one, too. It is a cute skirt and looks great on you so I know why you want to remake it!

You look sooooo cute in that skirt!! I too love putting unexpected linings inside my garments. I once lined a pair of pants with a bra and panty motif. Aren't we lucky that we can have such fun with our clothes?!!
