Sherlock's companion: Mohair Skirt


Inspiration: Something to wear with V8674. Version C a.k.a Sherlock's horse

Pattern: Cynthia Rowley Tulip Skirt 2512 mix version.

Level: Easy- beginners

Fabric: Same as the cape Mohair wool.

Needle: Universal 90

Pattern skill: Zipper and topstitching

Year: Modern A/W 2013

Details and Notions: 8in zipper

Time to complete: 3 hours. I had to remove the invisible zipper as it was getting stuck and add a exposed one instead.

Will you make it again? I have made it already in denim, in wool flannel, as an apron, and in cotton sateen and now in mohair wool. I guess the next one it's in linen.

What did you particularly like or dislike about this pattern: I love this pattern and said many times. There is nothing else to add.

What I could have done better? Zipper. I will re- do again. This wool was not the best match for the pattern. I used a light wool for facing but If happen again I would use a petersham ribbon.

Conclusion: Another wardrobe staple.

  33. I love every single item you are wearing! Besides that I have to say that I´ve always thought that wearing a cape is not an easy thing, and you need a certain amount of elegance to do so. You certainly have it.
    The waistband on your skirt, so pretty!
