Fuáil is the Irish language word for Sewing. This is my place as an amateur seamstress on the web - a diary or a scrapbook - where I record my projects, my designs, my attempts at dressmaking and sewing. I would love to gather around me a community of fellow dressmakers that are also based in Ireland... and some further afield too.
Months ago, I had this pattern shipped to my brother's friend in America (postage can be so expensive to Ireland).
I found a use for the Happy Black Fabric. I also used an Italian Linen bought in Hickey's. There's a lovely stretch to the linen.
I was worried that the much lighter cotton fabric and the heavier linen wouldn't work together in this pattern texture-wise. I think the idea is to use two fabrics of the same texture. But it worked fine.
I amn't demonstrating the skirt, because, unfortunately, it doesn't suit my figure at all.
Here's the inside:
The pattern was easy to follow. Some instructions were repeated which I found a bit confusing but it did all make sense.
