Straight Skirt and Kit and Kaboodle Mash

Wow, the sucess of the straight skirt has blown my mind. I’m loving that you are all loving the free pattern.  Remember to keep posting photos of the ones that you have made up because I LOVE seeing what you all sew, and the gorgeous fabrics you use ( I secretly drool over these as in NZ it is very hard to get nice knits).

The person who sews the most skirts wins a pattern of their choice.who sews the most

But, back to what I was meant to be talking about before I got distracted… Adding shorties under the skirt for added modesty for those girls that well…aren’t so good at being modest! (namly mine!)

What you will need:

  1. Skirt pattern (free with a code in my group)
  2. Kit and Kaboodle pattern (also free with a code from my group)
  3. Scissors
  4. Pencil
  5. Tracing paper (or what ever you like to use)

1modify the k&k pattern

Trace out the shorties pattern in the size you need.  then measure 2.5cm (1″) below the yoga waist line and draw another line, cut along this one when cutting the shorties out.

3

Sew the shorties  as per the tutorial and when you are up to the waistband, slip them inside the skirt and match up the CB and CF and side seams.  Attach the waistband as per the skirt tutorial.

5K celebration and Freebie

 Wow, I’m so humbled that we have reached 5000 members in the chat and share group, did you know we’ve gained 2000 members in only 1 year, that is amazing.  It’s only onwards and upwards from now, I’m really excited as to what the next year brings.

For a while now I have had a few friends saying that I needed to design a little pencil/straight skirt for my collection and when I saw that the 5000 milestone was coming up I thought what a perfect time to do it.

It doesnt have a fancy name, but true to LKC fashion it has as many options as I could squish into a plain old, boring straight skirt.

Capture

These are the options

2 lengths ~ long (below knee) vs short (above knee)

2 pocket styles

2 waistband styles

2 hem styles

and here is the link

Also to help celebrate my 5k milestone these lovely, generous designers have donated a pattern each.  Make sure you enter the giveaway link below and show them some love by joining their groups.  One winner will take all!!! Ends 11.59pm 27 April 2017 (NZST)
