Pattern Testing! : The Alder Skirt


              Last week, I got to be a tester for Imagine Gnats' new skirt pattern, the Alder Skirt!

 Why yes, I will show you cell phone pictures taken by a 5 year old in the bathroom :)
(Where is my camera?  I haven't seen it since we went to the beach!)

This was a really fun, fast sew!  I made it up in a kind of heavy cream corduroy I had, and I like the weight--but it would be so awesome in something much lighter weight, too.
I sewed a size 8, which fits perfectly, and I love how the back has some shaping with back darts.  The pockets are my favorite, though.

I have been wanting to sew a lot, so pattern testing gives me the deadline I need to get something finished.  It is really really hard to pull out the sewing machine--not because I have a 3 month old (he is a great sleeper and goes to bed now at 8)...but because I hate lugging my sewing machine onto the kitchen table and spreading stuff everywhere. If I ever get a table just for sewing, I have a feeling I would get a lot more done!
On the plus side, less sewing means more reading, so I guess there's that :)

Anyways, you can purchase the pattern here.  I highly recommend it!

For a second I thought this is shorts for men but after reading the details I came to know that it is women skirt, frankly speaking it don't look good but that's only my opinion. Anyways thank you for sharing it with us
