First Skirt And Top

Hi this skirt and top are my new projects. I stitched these things by seeing one old skirt and top those are already in usage. I think it is not easy for a beginner.Because I have spent lot of time for stitching. Sometimes over thinking causes severe head ache.
Actually this skirt is a pleated skirt.  Length of the material required is 3 times that of the waist measurement.Prints in the skirt are screen printings already done by me. This is a cotton material. So pleats are easily visible. Comparing with synthetic material cotton material is suitable for pleated skirt. It contains side opening. Zip is another choice. But First time I have stitched this skirt as a trial. So I don’t take risk with zip in my trial skirt. Because I have less days for diwali. With this experience only I will stitch diwali dresses for me and my babies.
First time I attached one elastic in waist. That did not come well. So I remove that and then attach this waist band. The one I have learnt from this is elastic is not suitable for pleated skirt.


Hi this top is also my first one as a trial. Plain top is not giving good look. So I have done one appliqué work in it. This embroidery is my first machine embroidery. This is a zigzag stitch. In my first trial this embroidery did not come out neatly. Next time I will try it better than this.
