This is my 2nd Beignet from Colette Patterns. I used medium blue twill from Fabric.com, Ikea curtains for the lining, and matching blue buttons from Hancock fabrics. Last time I cut a 2 and it was a little large, this time I cut a 0 and it is a teensy bit snug in the waist, but I also just ate lunch so we’ll see how it looks when I put it on first thing one morning. It also needs a good press, my iron is not up to the challenge, so I’ll have to wait until I visit my parents to get those seams properly pressed.
I L-O-V-E this pattern. I can see myself making at least one Beignet skirt every season for the rest of my life! This color is great for spring/summer and I wish I had made it earlier in the year so I can get more wear out of it. I also handstitched the hem during class one day.
This is my Summer Essentials Skirt, I chose a light color twill and very lightweight lining so that I can wear it on the hottest of days. I really like this skirt because it can be dressed down when I go out with my friends or dressed up and its long enough to wear to work.
I’ll definately be making more Beignets in the future, I’m thinking a black one, and maybe a yellow, any other suggestions?
