Fabric stash #11 - Butterick 3597

Excuse the dark colours, but this is a grey-black marle stretch weave fabric. The skirt is made from left over pieces of this fabric. I originally made this into pants, that I've worn out (almost) and two years ago, I made this jacket.

Both skirt and jacket are not lined. They are overlocked and I've used overlocking on the back of the skirt. I didn't have an invisible zip so I used a normal zipper. I love invisible zips but it wasn't that hard to put in a normal dress zip.

The waistline is finished with twill tape, because it's quick and I know that I'll probably wear this skirt to shreds in no time at all.

The fabric is as stiff as a board but the stretch had just enough to give for my liking. The fabric was from Home Yardage and the store has been closed for over two years.

I've got a few pieces of this fabric left and I should chuck it out - but I haven't.

Wow you have been productive, I really like the look of all your garments, they are so versatile. Now, how do I convince DH that we need Foxtel :)

Just buy the sport channels for him and the lifestyle channels for yourself.
