New Suede Skirt
This summer I am working on several new leather garments to help promote my new Sewing Leather CD this fall. Here is a great suede skirt made from one skin using Simplicity 9825. I omitted the CF seam and put an invisible zipper in the back. The yoke makes good use of the skin. The skin was purchased with the tie dye print. The top is Vogue 2814, an Issey Miyake, pattern. It is made from a lightweight wool jersey. I washed the jersey first on a delicate cycle in cold water. It felted just slightly. The neck and hem edges are raw and top stitched.
