This was the first Gandini fabric I ever purchased from Mood.It’s a really neat sturdy woven cotton that breathes really nicely and doesn’t wrinkle too much even after a day at work. Once I saw it in Mood, I kept thinking about it because the print is pretty unique and the fabric felt so nice. It’s sold in panels and this was the first time I bought one of those. When I started to try and figure out what I wanted to make with it…I was initially nervous because I didn’t want to cut into the fabric, mess up, and then have wasted such a nice piece of cloth. As I’ve mentioned before, sometimes the start of a project can be pretty intimidating because you have an idea in your head and I think there can be an initial fear about whether you’ll accomplish or get close to that goal. I try to always remind myself that even if I really messed up, I could probably take the leftovers and make some type of purse so it wouldn’t really be a waste. This was very early on in my initial sewing exploration so everything I was doing felt pretty new and was regularly broken up by watching YouTube videos (shout out Nick Verreos)Overall, it turned out quite nice and I get quite a few compliments about this skirt at work. To make it, I basically draped it with only a dart on the side in the upper waist and a back zipper. I think this was a nice way to keep the print uninterrupted around the body of the skirt.I also realize I technically posted about this skirt already, but it’s getting nicer out so it was time to talk about this project in a little more detail!
