Wow, it’s end of November already. I must confess this time it was a close one to finish my Sew Your Wardrobe Basics make. This month theme was leather /faux leather and I had planned to make a faux leather skirt for quite some time now. During the sewing process I remembered how much I dislike sewing faux leather… or maybe it was this one in particular, I don’t know. However, it took me forever to finish this simple skirt. In addition to that I like to knit a lot lately… new found hobby. 🙂 My Novice sweater is almost done and I hope to share it here soon.
Of course you are invited to share your November basic in the link tool above, just add the link or visit the posts of the others.

About my skirt:
fabric: faux leather (from my stash)
sewing pattern: Vikisews Agnia (Russian Version), Agnia Rock in English currently on sale
size: I chose the skirt pattern after my waist and hip measurements on the Vikisews website. The patterns run true to size.
fit: The skirt is quite fitted, but not tight.
alterations: I made no alterations to the pattern, but since I lost some weight I would take the side seams in around 1cm. That’s not because of the pattern, but because I didn’t want to buy the smaller size and print the pattern again. When I take in the side seams the skirt get’s shorter, too, so I would lengthen the skirt around 2cm, the next time I make it.
recommendation: I like the simple, but not basic shape of the skirt pattern, but this faux leather skirt is a bit wide. Next time I need to make some adjustments (the first time on Vikisews patterns). The instructions are great if you want to make a (faux) leather skirt, because the instructions include a lot of tipps for sewing leather. I’d like to make this skirt again, but with a wool fabric I have in my stash and I can recommend the pattern (in the correct size). 🙂

Tomorrow I’ll announce the last Sew Your Wardrobe Basics theme for 2021 and I hope to see you again here.
Have a great rest of the week.
