Pamela's Patterns Bias Skirt!

I finally wore my PP Bias Skirt made during a recent sewing retreat with Pamela Leggett.

I normally do not wear long skirts, I  did not get on the maxi dress/skirt train.  I did go with a midi length though.  I wore this to work on Thursday.  I like the drape of the fabric on the bias.

The skirt past the weariability test, not a lot of wrinkles.  This is a rayon purchased from Fabric Mart that was in a kit to make a wrap dress by McCall's.  It was called Pick Up Sticks and the little sticks remind me of that game I played a lot as a child.

After taking these pictures I realized that my black top tucked into the skirt left a blackish background under the skirt.  I wore a flesh colored slip.

Some of the bias skirts shown by Pamela at the retreat were from some gorgeous fabrics that had great drape and very flattering.  I do want to make a shorter version and plan to do so toward September.

I finished a Simplicity top pattern by Cynthia Rowley.  Hope to wear it soon, here it is on AlmaMarie before sleeves and bodice was hemmed.
I am working on a tunic from the Tunic Bible.  More on that latter.


  1. Lovely skirt, and like you I really like that bias drape. Very nice fabric the top is made from. I thought at first it was multiple fabrics, but then realized it was a patchwork print (I think). Gorgeous colors!

    1. Thank you! I am on the lookout for some floral rayon challis to try another skirt.

  2. I think you're right about the midi length--it hangs so well on the bias! Are you entering the tunic contest with your Tunic Bible make? I thought about it--I found some beautiful mirrored ribbon in San Francisco, but I'm on the fence with tunics as a style on me.

    1. I am entering the contest. I tend to enter the contest and then time runs out before I complete the project. I think I may meet the deadline this time.
