Sewing - Two circle skirts in 5 hours.


Hei!
Kävin eilen ostamassa parit hamekankaat, pallokuvioista ja puolukkakuviota jouluksi.
Alle kahden viikon kuluttua olisi taas jälleen tiedossa nimittäin paikallisen rockabilly-yhtyeen
King Rebel & Ramblersin keikka (lue täältä ja täältä). En ole vielä ihan täysin päättänyt, kumman
hamosen sinne pistän. Pallokuvio olisi ainakin stereotyyppinen meidän 50-luku-teemaiselle illalle,
mutta toisaalta.. tykkään tuosta puolukastakin. Kummasta te tykkäätte enemmän?

(Translation: Hello!
Yesterday I bought two fabrics for circle skirts. Polka dots and lingonberries, for christmas.
In two weeks I will go to see (once again) our local rockabilly band King Rebel & Ramblers
(read here and here). I haven't quite decided which skirt I will wear that night. Polka dots
would be quite stereotypical, for our 50s themed evening, but in the other hand.. I like those
lingonberries too. Which one you like best?)


Tein tuon pallokuvioisen kellohameen vähän yli neljässä tunnissa.. Tein ensimmäistä
kertaa itseasiassa hameen kunnon vyötärönauhalla ja vetoketjulla! Muistanette ekan
kellohameyritykseni? Okei, tämä pallokuviohame olisi voinut onnistua paremminkin,
mutta olen todella tyytyväinen siihen silti. Puolukkahame onnistui miltei täydellisesti - minun
mittapuullani! Todellakin huomasin heti eron taidoissani näiden kahden hameen välillä. Ja ei
mennyt tällä kertaa tuota puolukkahametta tehdessä kuin tunti! Niin sitä vaan oppii.. :)

(It took over 4 hours to sew that polka dot skirt.. It was my first time I ever tried to make that kind
of waist part and a zipper on a skirt. You might remember the first time I sewed a circle skirt?
Okey, this polka dot skirt could be better, but I am satisfied with it. Lingonberry skirt was a
success! I really see the change in my skills when I am comparing these two skirts.
And it took just an hour sewing that lingonberry skirt!)


Have a great day!

  2. They are awesome!! It makes me want to really sew again. I do more altered couture than anything. It's been a long time since I made something from start to finish! I like the lingonberries! But I do adore polka dots too!

  13. Aivan aivan ihana tuo pallohame! Itse oon tehnyt vähän vastaavan (sekin mustavalko pilkullinen, mutta huomattavasti pienemmät pilkut! hihi!) vyötärölle ulottuvan hameen monta vuotta sitten ja se on ihan mun lemppari! Mistä otit tuon ohjeen? :--) Itseäkin kiinnostaisi ommella vyötäröltä vähän istuvampi hame! c:

  14. One hour for a skirt! That's great! And I couldn't decide which one I like better. Polka dots are usually always my favourite but the lingonberry skirt is so lovely too. For wearing it on Christmas I would take the lingonberry one, combined with a red blouse or a red cardigan. All the best for you, my dear Sara
