This is the quickest and easiest make I’ve made since my return to sewing. Bias skirts are everywhere right now so I decided to add one to my me made wardrobe. The Evie Bias Skirt fit the bill perfectly and I have been eager to use one of Tessuti Fabrics patterns since I read a blog post on their pattern style. Their patterns are hand drafted and hand graded. I absolutely love the authenticity of this and also agree you get shaping that is difficult to achieve using CAD technology. Not only are the patterns hand graded but the instructions are beautifully typed and photographed.
I may have messed up slightly on my fabric choice for this make. Although I love the abstract spot print and colours the fabric weight and drape is not 100% suited to this style. As a result, I did take the skirt in slightly as it didn’t collapse and drape around the body as it may have in a lighter weight fabric. That gives me a reason to remake this skirt at some other time is a softer, dreamier fabrication…….
