Hollyburn skirt from Sewaholic

Thanks to a website called TrixieLixie this pattern went from being an idea late at night looking at images on Pinterest, to  ordering the next day and then having the pattern in my hand at 9am the day after.

It seemed like a shame not to keep up the momentum, like this skirt wants to be made now! I’m having a fabric quandry, as I think my corduroy might be too heavy and also a trickier fabric to sew than cotton, but I’m seizing the day and getting out some burgundy cord from eBay which has been in my stash for four years.

Sewaholic is a Canadian company I have learnt about from other sewing blogs. The packaging a good and the pattern is on real tissue, so extra points to them (as some indie pattern companies are just on regular paper).

  1. If you use corduroy, just make sure that your pattern pieces are all facing the same way, on the grain, with the smooth surface facing towards the bottom of the skirt .I made the mistake of not doing that, when I was first making skirts.
