The Violet Fields Vivienne Skirt pattern was my last pattern purchase of 2011. I loved the style of this little skirt so much but was not in love with the way she put the pieces together. There was nothing really wrong with her way I just prefer my way so I thought I'd show it to you. You really will need the pattern to use this information though. Which is how it should be.
The big change I made was to sew the front and back outer skirt pieces together without lining the front.
This seam makes to top of the elastic casing.
She's showing you that her favorite part of the whole skirt is the horse fabric. She doesn't ride but her friend M does. I actually made M the same skirt in her size for her birthday I just have to get around to putting the applique on her shirt. Good think for me her party isn't for another week.
I hope this was helpful. Its funny when I first started sewing I treated directions like they were the law now I don't even read them sometimes and at most treat them as strong suggestions. Don't get me wrong this attitude has totally bitten me in the butt before but its also allowed me to figure out what works best for me.
