January 2017 MAGAM Determined

So I've dilly dallied a bit in posting my January MAGAM Challenge.  It's going to be this skirt:

From this book:

Out of these two fabrics:

The fabric on the left is a nice teal colored wool and the fabric on the right is a polyester I'll use for the lining.  The pattern doesn't call for a lining, but since it's wool - I'll need one because me and wool just don't get along in close proximity to each other so a lining is a must.

I've already cut out the pieces and marked them with tailors tacks and pinned on notes to each piece telling me what it is.  I can see this could get very confusing in the construction process without those notes.  Here's the front:

And here are the two back pieces:

I actually purchased this book just for this pattern so I'm hoping it will be a winner.  I'm a huge fan of asymmetrical clothing and usually the stranger the pattern, the more I like it.  This one kinda looks like ocean waves so far.  Now - it's time to get sewing on it!  Wish me luck everyone!

Happy sewing!



  1. I remember this skirt on the programme. Its always nice to have a lining, wool fabric or no! And this will look so pretty.

    1. Thanks Dawn. I'm looking forward to making it and wearing it!

  2. It looks amazing so far! I am allergic to wool so I never buy it. However, I've seen a sewing instructor recommend a lining for those that have wool a version. I don't get anything serious, just really itchy. I will have to try that.

  3. Oh, I remember that skirt. It's going to be an interesting make. And wool, yes, lining or a petticoat needed.
