In case you haven’t got your hands on a copy yet, issue 34 of Simply Sewing includes Jennie Jones’ guide to how to sew this swishy midi skirt with handkerchief hem…
It’s a great project if you’re new to dressmaking (especially as you don’t even need to fiddle around with pattern cutting to make it), and we’re just *bit* smitten with the fabric that Jennie’s used! She’s opted for Corde Fleur Night from Seasalt’s range of cotton voile fabrics. With bold and bright florals to make a statement, this fabric is soft and light, so it’s perfect for dress making. It’s a limited edition print so if you want some, snap it up while you can over on the Seasalt website. The collection actually comes in 27 different patterns so you’re sure to find one to suit your style.
