Modified Merino Lindy Petal Skirt



After finishing Tessuti Megan Longline Cardigan I had a remnant of fabric left over that was just about bi enough for a skirt.  Rather than put the remnant in my cupboard, I chose to deal with it straight away.


The pattern I chose was Lindy Petal Skirt.  I used the back and waistband pattern pieces but cut two.  Because my merino was more drapey than the ponti I usually use for this pattern, I added 1cm to each side seam to avoid it clinging in all the wrong places.  I cut the back twice to get my standard pencil shaped skirt.

My piece of fabric was not quite long enough to cut it a decent length but by piecing an extension to the front and an extension with a centre back seam, I was able to eek it out of my remnant.  




My new skirt is super comfy to wear and will come in handy, until the weather gets too warm, for work.
