I made a TARDIS skirt!

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

Well, it's been a while! To be honest, I haven't really been making much, though. College keeps me busy! Over spring break, though, I finally made this skirt which I've been planning for over a year (I went back and found sketches of it in my notebook from probably last October) so that's good!

 It's made of cotton, with a pattern I drafted myself. The side seams are machine done but crazy me decided to spread the seams, turn them under, and hand-whip them down. I don't know what that seam finish is called but it looks nice! A lot of work though. I did the zipper by hand too because I needed to make it work easily from both sides. It's still a little awkward to zip from the plain black side, but it works! 

The TARDISes were stenciled with contact paper and acrylic paints. I put them on a separate piece of fabric so the paint wouldn't seep through, and then sewed it on. 

I'm quite satisfied with it! Hopefully, I'll be able to post some of the other things I've made soon.
