Knit godet skirts from recent Threads magazine

Lilith1951 | Posted in Photo Gallery on

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.
