Sew an Airy Chiffon Skirt

April 26, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

We love sheer chiffon – its delicate drift as it swirls airily and the way lining changes its colors. Lorenna from Lorenna Buck Designs and CraftGossip made this tutorial for a swishy ankle-length chiffon skirt, and Threads magazine has some handy tips for sewing with chiffon, this most gossamer of fabrics! Larenna says that this is “a silk chiffon maxi skirt that is versatile for daily wear and packs down small”. Britex Fabrics’ silk sheer chiffon is on sale through Friday, May 4, 2012.
