Between job interviews, a terrible winter here in Istanbul (it never stops snowing or raining or both at the same time!) and my 150th flu, I really didn't have much time to sew. My only accomplishment is the Meringue Skirt which I had been drooling over for a looong time; and as soon as I felt a little better -and had some time- I laid my hands on the pattern.
Sorry for the "humanless" photos; still not feeling good enough to pose :(
As everyone points out, Meringue is such an easy yet elegant skirt. It has two darts on the front and back pieces, widens slightly towards the hem and closes with an invisible zipper on the left. What makes it remarkable is the scalloped hem which is so "in" at the moment. I must admit I was a little sceptical with scallops at first, but they add so much to such a plain little skirt. And they are not that difficult to make too (check out all the scallop tutorials Suzie so neatly listed on her blog).
I used my eyelet fabric bought from the neighbourhood market I wrote about earlier. It turned out to be a romantic piece, suitable even for special occasions (date night, family dinner..). And I was proud with myself for making the invisible zipper "invisible enough" :)) The flower patterns did not quite match on the front and back pieces, but alas, I will accept that!
