Rachel's Saturday Skirt Set

Rachel's Saturday Skirt Set

I’ve been itching to make the Saturday skirt set by Friday pattern company since it was released but was waiting for the right fabric to come along when I spotted this beautiful viscose twill at Jenny’s, this fabric has a crepe texture to it and is very fluid and drapey but perfect for this make.

I love the colours in this fabric perfect for spring and it has quite a weighty feel to it so perfect for swishing!.

I did find it easier to work with using my trusty spray starch particularly on the blouse to make sure I attached the collar precisely but I didn’t need it for the skirt. The blouse is quite cropped so I lengthened it by 2.5 inches and 1.25 inches on the sleeves, I am 5’10 for reference, I didn’t lengthen the skirt and am happy with the finished length on me.

There is the occasional peek of midriff but I think I can still get away with it and I can see myself making more of this set for the summer, it’s a perfect little co-ord for a day out or a stroll around town.
