Clothkits Big Birdie Skirt – Completed

 

Hello,

A quick note about how I completed the Clothkits Big Birdie skirt –

CKits cover

Planned adjustments:

  1. I added a lining to the skirt, the fabric came from a stall in Walthamstow market.  It is 100% viscose, polka dot, for £2.50 per meter.
  2. To add a little length, I finished the hem with bias binding.
  3. I will add hanger tapes, made from the measuring tape ribbon provided.

Adjustments made:

I finished all the cut edges with an overlock stitch. This not completely necessary, but there is plenty of sewing thread provided should you wish to do the same.

Below is a short video featuring the skirt, enjoy!

Thanks for reading and watching.

Me Made May – Day 9 | Champagne Twist

Today, I wore for the first time my new Big Birdie skirt, which I renamed the Birdie Skirt.  Yes it is May, and corduroy season is well and truly over, but it has ben so cold recent. So instead of saving the skirt for Autumn, I gave it a test run.  I must say I really like it, it very comfortable, and thanks to my bias binding hem, it’s not too short. I will be looking out for more designs from Clothkits.

Here’s a review of the skirt I made: review.

The video below is also an update on the lining I added to the kit –
