Yesterday evening I made an underskirt from the TV 225 Fantail skirt. Today I put on trim! Here it is:



I had to lighten the photos to show detail, but it's jet black.

I'm in love with that particular TV pattern. It goes together so quickly and the end result is always so beautiful.

Kat, that is really beautiful! I have that pattern too, but haven't done any NF stuff yet. I'm happy to see it made up. It really has lovely lines to it. Was it easy to work with?

omg, it was sooo easy! I made up the entire skirt from the beginning in an evening. The trimming I did today. And if you leave out the "fan" of the fantail, you just get a regular trained skirt. So you really get three different options with this pattern...floor length, fantail, or regular trained.

Oooohh, it looks lovely! I always liked this style, was it hard to make?

Thanks!
No, it was really easy and fast to make. I did the basic skirt in one evening. And since I bought the trim, I didn't even have to spend a day pleating to get 12 yards!

Kat,

That's beautiful. How do you finish the inside of your skirts btw?

I serge all the edges, so there's no need for fancy seams (like French or flat felled seams) unless I want one. The hem I just turn up twice.

It's so stunning. You motivate me to sew something for the WGT this year. :)

I'm way behind on my reading but are those small pleats? LOVE LOVE LOVE!
How did you do them? By hand? *fingers itching*
*ETA- I should have read the comments first. Now I see you bought them. But hey, they can be made by hand too. ;)
