Lindy Petal Skirt in Floral Scuba Knit

Itch to Stitch Lindy Petal Skirt, Mood Fabrics Scuba knit

I have been trying to do a good job of using my leftover yardage.   I had enough of this fabulous scuba knit to make Kaitlyn a skirt. 


My dress, McCall's 6886, in a scuba knit and I had some yardage left of this fabric to make a skirt.

I went with Itch to Stitch Lindy Petal Skirt, an easy pattern with some wonderful details.  Like the side detail of the front wrap.  Made once before for Kaitlyn, here

Now for the hem, I didn't turn it up, instead I used some black ponte for binding.  I did have to do the front and back pieces individually and sew the side seams.  This side matches nicely, the other side is okay!  :)

Here is the petal part of the skirt, I think it is a fun detail, in fact here is the description from the Itch To Stitch website
indy Petal Skirt is a simple knit pencil skirt with an elastic waistband. It features two overlapping curved front panels that resemble two petals. It is figure-hugging and showcases your curves. Lindy Petal Skirt is a quick sew; even starting as a late night project, you will finish in time to wear to the office the next day!

I used my coverstitch to finish the waistband and stitch the hem binding in place.

So just like the description says, this is a super cute project and it can be done in one evening.  I am so happy to have used the rest of this fabric.

    1. Thank you, the binding seems to rest the eye with all the busy print - or least that is how I view it.
