I have a confession… I love topstitching. I know, I know that probably seems strange, but there is something that is so gratifying about slowing down and making those rows of topstitching look just right. The new Santi Skirt from Designer Stitch is a great pattern to satisfy my love of topstitching.
The pattern has the following features:
- Center back zipper
- Shaped belt with belt loops
- Front Patch Pockets
- Top stitching on all panels
Medium weight woven fabric is recommended for this pattern. I was lucky to find this suede fabric in the clearance Halloween section at Joann Fabrics, and with the sale and coupons I got it for about $3.50/yard!
My new santi skirt looks great with the Four Seasons cardigan I made recently. With the soft suede skirt and the cardigan made from soft bamboo fabric, this oufit is so comfortable.
Recommendations: Slow down your sewing when topstitching, it is much easier to get your rows lined up if you are willing to slow down a bit.
Fabric: Suede from Jo-Ann fabrics
