As soon as Liesl posted the City Stoll Skirt for sale, I HAD to have it!! Thankfully, it was right before Mother's day, so I sweetly asked my husband for it as a gift.
So many things came together for me from my weekend with Liesl at Craft South.
- Liesl wore her City Stroll Wrap Skirt during the event, so I knew I loved it in person.
- I finally realized that waiting to purchase any other women's pattern until I had sewn the fit and flare style dresses I had fitted at Craft South was ridiculous. I wasn't sewing those, because I didn't have a real need for them in my wardrobe.
- My measurements fell at size 12 for the waist and size 8 for the hips. (You could say I'm blockish or carry all my weight in my middle.) So, I had to use my muslin practice from Craft South and try to blend sizes.
I'm still not sure I have the perfect fit, but it feels good on. A smidge shorter, maybe? I'm 5'-9", so I'm surprised if that would be the case. I just love the fit on Liesl! Let me know if you have any suggestions!!
The fabric is a tencel denim I picked up in Nashville. I can see this skirt getting lots of wear in the hot summer months. I guess it would be weird to have one in every color?!? I have a bright yellow stretch twill that might be fun. I'm also eyeing the Maritime Knit Top and the Everyday Skirt. It's been fun branching out and sewing a bit for myself!
