The Rae Skirt by Sewaholic is a quick and easy sewing project suitable for absolute beginners to dressmaking. Happy Sewing!
I’ve finished the Rae Skirt by Sewaholic months ago but didn’t find the time to share it on the blog until now. It was one of my early summer sewing projects. When I first started sewing the skirt I wasn’t too sure about the style as I usually prefer my skirts with more added details. Anyway, I decided to give it a try as I was in desperate need for new skirts (and a quick weekend sewing project!). It turned out to be one of the quickest and easiest skirts I’ve ever made and I’ve finished it within a day (cutting AND sewing!).
Tasia designed the sewing pattern as a very first sewing project for beginners (no zips, lining, pockets etc.). It comes with easy-to-follow instructions, which are more detailed than her other sewing patterns. There are three different style options for the skirt: 1) an above the knee skirt with a slightly full silhouette, 2) the same length as option 1 but more fullness, and 3) a knee-length version of option 2.
I’ve decided to make the knee-length version of the skirt (option 3) in a size 0. For the fabric, I’ve picked blue floral cotton poplin as I wanted a light and summery look. Although I wasn’t too sure about the fit of the skirt nor the floral fabric, it actually turned out to be pretty cute in combination with a plain white shirt (see for yourself below!). What do you think?!
