Simplicity 7227 skirt for level 1

I have finished my skirt for level one on my learn to sew blog

Here is the final post for my level one

Level 1 skirt done

Simplicity 7227 is done. I can defiantly say it has been one of my quickest recent projects. It is also one of my most successful. Even though this is an elastic waist skirt made from one of the most matronly fabrics I have it is also one best looking when it comes to the inside.I think what made the difference is the hem. I have never done a hand stitched hem and I have never used seam binding before and this made a real difference on how the skirt looked on the inside. I did not use a lace labled seam binding but instead used a narrow lace that I already had. I don't know if I'll actually be able to find anything like that here labeled seam binding,but I think it still worked out.

What did I learn from Level 1
  • How to do a hand stitched hem
  • How seam binding can make a hem look a lot better
  • Simple can still be nice
So in conclusion, I really like how it turned out and I am glad I did take the time to do level one even though I feel my skills are beyond this level but I did learn something and that is what is most important here. Also I now a new pattern that I would like to use more that can whipped up in no time.

Pictures Coming Soon
