I really like Libby A-line skirt pattern from Tessuti, especially the long version. In April, I made this Libby and since then it has become one of my staples. It is easy to wear and something pretty. As the fabric was sheer light polyester, I lined it with an anti-transparency cupro but made the lining much shorter than usual to give some fun effect.
There is not much to tell about this skirt because it hasn't got many alterations. That is fine by me, because I don't require complications when they are already alright.
By the way, I had a short trip to Shikoku with my sewing girlfriends a week ago. Shikoku is the smallest island of the four main islands of Japan and is located in southern part of our country. The weather was spotlessly fine while we were there, and we had the most happy and fun short holiday by the Pacific Ocean.
There we stopped by (I'm writing as if it wasn't the main subject of this holiday, but it was of course) a fabric store at which we normally purchase fabrics on line. The owner lady of the shop is one of my favorite people in the world and I was really happy to see her again after the last couple of years.
I think there is no need to explain to you that I bought quite a few pieces of fabrics... I'm so looking forward to sewing with them before long.
