Hello! The weather has been wonderfully warm here in New Hampshire. I'm still keeping on track with my Me Made May Challenge. Looking at all the creative outfits people post each day in the Flickr group has really been a motivator in kicking my SewJo into high gear. It's also caused me to buy a few new patterns and more fabric, oops!
On my last order of fabric from Fashion Fabrics Club, I had ordered this "linen look" fabric and was quite disappointed it was actually thin polyester. Since it was a nice muted lilac color and it draped nicely I decided to make this Megan Nielsen Cascade Skirt. The rest of the fabric from my order was excellent!
I've had this pattern around my sewing room for a few years now, so it's nice I found a fabric drapey enough to use for it finally, and I really like purples lately. I chose the version with two buttons at the front, and I made no alterations. I did add a partial lining since my fabric was so thin.
I know many others chose to take length off the back, which I may try on a future version, but I thought I'd try it as-is in the pattern. I like it! It feels a bit fancy, but I'm okay with that! I'm a full-time mom, and pretty much always overdressed by American standards. I like nice clothes, what can I say?!
