Linen Summer Outfit! 🌞
I'm in love with Green for the moment 💚
I bought this nice linen fabric online from Lituania.
It has very tiny stripes, but that makes it even more interesting.
I had exactly enough to make both a jacket and a skirt.
I have made the jacket with Tulips of the same pattern before.
I found the skirt pattern in an old magazine.
The skirt has a little split at the one side.
All the pieces are cut out, and I was so happy that I manage to cut out a skirt as well :)
I started with sewing the inserts for the skirt,
and then the zipper at the back panels.
To stitch very narrow the zipper from the hem and up I have to change the sewing-foot.
The invisible zipper are stitched in place.
The skirt is finished, but I have to make the lining.
I had to leave an opening for the split at the side.

I have stitched the pleats for the front panels,
- amd for the back panel.
Side seams are stitched, and the sleeves have to be stitched.
I have used fish-pads for the shoulders, but shoulder-pads as well
since the fabric was a bit thin.
I chose to use yellow lining.
The lining matched my Chiffon Blouse that are an earlier project.
