Lutterloh 203

I have made this skirt a couple of times in a stretch cotton and worn it a lot. It is VERY basic and sews up really quickly. It is a two piece skirt with a side zipper, back darts and a waistband facing. I purchased this brown fabric which I liked the colour/pattern of but once made I realized it did not match anything in my closet as brown is not one of my colours.

So this skirt has sat unworn for over a year as I could never find the right fabric in which to make a top to go with it. That is until recently when I came across this rayon knit for $2/metre. I immediately thought of the Sorbetto top which is such a quick sew and now I have a casual outfit to wear for the rest of our extremely hot summer.

I must remember to wear a t-shirt bra with it though as the fabric is quite thin. I am glad the skirt finally gets to come out and play as it is so comfortable.

The next thing I have on my sewing table is a McCalls woven shirt pattern. I have never made a shirt before so I am looking forward to the fitting challenge.


  1. That makes a great summer outfit. I hate it when a piece languishes in the closet without a complimentary piece to o with it. The top fabric was a nice find!

  2. Great outfit. Love the top - looks nice and cool.
