Scotty Dog Skirt

26 Oct

Celebrating the Scot in me!

I’m currently learning professional dressmaking – – – and loving it. I’ve never made any clothes before and haven’t used a sewing machine since one time when I was a young teen, so: a little nerve wracking!

I wanted a simple A line skirt pattern and Mum came up with this, the Rock Jupe Skirt pattern from Burda. I don’t know the year. This pattern had never been used!
I’m following the B pattern.

At the first class our dressmaking tutor cautioned “it’s better finding a pattern FIRST and then choose the fabric.” So with her wise words in mind I fell in love with a certain fabric – – – a deep red tartan spotted with cute little Scotty dogs!

I knew I had to buy it: it was a very good price at £6.50 the metre, there was only 2 and a half metres left on the roll, and it had little dogs all over it!
And I was sure to find a suitable pattern :p
