The Axel Skirt and Inari Top – Pattern Besties
First up, a quick but HUGE thank you to everyone for the incredible response to our latest Frankie pattern release! Man, we were blown away and can’t wait to see your versions xx
Today I’m posting two recent makes that are pattern soul sisters. First up, Megan Nielsen’s Axel Skirt. The pattern comes with three skirt options and mine’s version 3. It’s high-waisted, midi length and features an inverted ‘V’ slit.
Construction? Two words – Dead. Easy. With the exception of the twin needling around hem and split (just missed, dammit), the entire skirt was done on the overlocker. There’s no elastic in that waist band and it’s a slim fit, so I’d definitely recommend a firmer, mid-weight ponti for this style. I used our (now sold out) Blu Navy Punto but this new Black Razor Ponti would be perfect (coming soon in navy, ivory and silk grey colourways).
