I have made another Style Arc Fay Skirt. You can see my first version here.
For this one I used a scuba knit with a lovely mosaic print in navy and white. This is one of the lovely fabrics I purchased from Spotlight on my birthday. I hadn't ever sewed with scuba knit before so this was a new experience. It is quite thick and stable like a thick ponte knit, only it has a lovely smooth, almost silky surface.
The fay skirt is a double layer of fabric. There is only one pattern piece which is cut twice. The side seams are sewn creating a long tube which is then turned inside itself with the raw edges finishing at the waistline. Elastic is attached and turned over creating the waistband. There is no hem.
This double layer of scuba knit has certainly made this a nice warm skirt. This skirt is super quick and easy to make and it has a lovely shape.
The picture above is a close up of the beautiful mosaic print.
I have worn this several times already and it has been a favourite for date night, dressed up with this white RTW cardigan, high heels and pearls.
I have been a bit lazy lately, sewing very easy garments but I love the instant gratification. Better move onto something a little more challenging.
