Runway Skirt blog tour

If you follow me, you know about my love for the girls behind the blog Skirt Fixation. I hope that one day my girls will sew and blog together with me as well. Now, Audrey did something else that I hope that I will follow her in once in the future, she released her first pattern. As could have been expected, she released a skirt pattern and it is called the Runway skirt. The vintage skirt comes in three lengths and has eye catching godets. The skirt is designed for stretch fabrics, so it is super comfortable.

I chose to make a knee length skirt and I used an coupon from Textielstad. I have no clue what kind of fabric it is, but it stretched remarkably well, is sturdy and looks great. I chose lining fabric for the godets, but with hindsight I should have chosen something with more drapey. Even after a few years of sewing, I am still learning about fabrics and their characteristics. The godest are a bit stiffer than how it was intended, but they still look nice.

For the pictures, I wore my shirt in the skirt. I know this is a totally allowed look, but it is not how I will wear this skirt. I did it to show the nice waist of the skirt without having to lift my skirt. I really love the way the skirt fits and I plan to hack the skirt by using the front twice, to make a true staple skirt for my wardrobe as well. I omitted the zipper due to the stretchiness of the fabric. Ironing it will not be necessary neither, really a dream skirt.

We made pictures a few weeks ago already, so I was not actually freezing in my shirt and bare legs. Due to the blog tour the skirt is now on a 20% discount available in the Skirt Fixation pattern shop. You can also enter the give away below. You can win (back) a copy of the Runway skirt and a $25 gift certificate to Urban Sew!
