Knit godet skirts from recent Threads magazine
Daughter loved the skirt in the magazine with the rectangular godets, so we plunged in and did it—successfully. We made it fit more like a pencil skirt….neither of us liked the baggy fit. They are comfortable, easy dressing for her job that takes her on the road a lot. The ivory knit was easy to work with; the stripes–not so much. They were a soft, wiggly knit and matching the stripes was a headache. That being said, I’m not sorry I did it, because she absolutely loves both skirts. Looking for more knits to do….maybe a floral before summer is gone?
It was my first time using a twin needle on a regular machine. I’ve been sewing since 1965 and never used one before. It worked out very well for all these straight hems.
