My Autumn Floral Estuary Skirt

I can’t express just how much I’m in love with this beautiful Art Gallery Rayon Fabric
. The colours are amazing and perfect for autumn.
Last month I made a denim version of the Sew Liberated Estuary skirt and I’ve worn it so much. I considered making a dress from this lovely rayon but then I thought that I want to make something that will get lots of wear, so I decided on another Estuary, and I’m so pleased that I did.
The rayon washed really well, and presses very well too. It was a little tricky to cut out as it doesn’t hold its structure, if you find it too difficult you can lay it on top of paper and cut through all layers.
As the fabric is so soft and fluid, I worried about whether the pockets would work, but they are such an important feature on this pattern and I do love a good pocket. So I decided to fully interface and line them which made them much more stable so they worked out fine.
One issue is that I cut them out upside down with the flowers pointing downwards (ooops) but I decided that it would just have to be a design feature.
I love how versatile the skirt is, the wide range of colours makes it really easy to make lots of different outfits from one skirt. It’s also super comfy to wear thanks to the elasticated back waist.
As you can see, I do love a turtle neck sweater, and I could wear any Colour that I liked with this skirt and it would look great.
I also decided to try dressing it up a little and tried it with a blouse. I love this look too, it’s so feminine and a little bit risky with the open buttons.
I only have positive things to say about the fabric and the pattern and would highly recommend both.
Thanks for reading and happy sewing.
