Seamstress Skirts

This fabric....it was love at first sight...Vintage sewing machines!! Fabric is Kaufman, Vintage Couturier, charcoal sewing and I bought it on Etsy. It was quite expensive with postage considering that this is still a cotton print.
When fabric came I was slightly disappointed because of the background color...it's supposed to be charcoal and charcoal is dark gray...what I see is light gray fabric.
Well...I planned to sew myself a full circle skirt but because of fabric width and pattern position it wasn't possible. Instead one full circle skirt I've sewed two skirts. One pencil and one bell skirt. I'm completely satisfied!
Ova tkanina .... bila je to ljubav na prvi pogled ... Vintage šivaće mašine! Taman za mene.Tkanina je Kaufman, Vintage Couturier, boje ugljena i kupila sam ga na Etsy-ju. Bila je prilično skupa zajedno s poštarinom s obzirom na to da je ovo ipak samo tisak na pamuku.

Kad je tkanina stigla bila sam malo razočarana jer je boja pozadine trebala biti tamno siva (charcoal=ugljen)... ono što ja vidim je svijetlo siva tkanina... 

Uglavnom planirala sam sašiti suknju u krug, ali zbog širine tkanina (112cm) i položaja uzorka to nije bilo moguće. Umjesto jedne suknje u krug sašila sam si dvije suknje. Jedna uska i jedna u zvono. Ja sam zadovoljna!

 Left side pocket with zip closure

 First I sewed the zipper on the back of the skirt and on the pocket.
 Front of the skirt and pocket
Now connect the front and the back of skirt along the edge of the skirt and zipper, but don't forget to leave  pocket opening free. Sew 3cm from waist, leave cca. 13cm pocket opening free and then continue to sew the sides of the skirt to the hem.

Fabric is gorgeous soft wool (95%wool and 5%elastane).

New Sailor Pants and Complaining About Shop Policies

I do not understand how is it possible for a serious internet shop, in this case from Germany, not to deliver to Croatia and even in Slovenia though Slovenia is part of the EU. Well, they deliver to Romania....

Luckily, a friend from England offered to buy for me the goods I want and send me to Croatia.
It's about parts for blue suspender belt :) Blue Lycra arrived today, now I'm waiting for blue 2cm elastic for garter straps, 1cm trim elastic and  hook and eye closure.

Ne mogu razumijeti kako je moguće da jedan ozbiljan internet dućan, u ovom slučaju iz Njemačke, ne dostavlja svoje proizvode u Hrvatsku, a što je još luđe niti u Sloveniju makar je Slovenija u EU. No, u Rumunjsku dostavljaju......
Nije mi jasno. 

No, na svu sreću prijatelj iz Engleske ponudio se da on kupi željenu robu i pošalje je meni u Hrvatsku.
Riječ je o dijelovima za plave haltere :) Plava lycra stigla je danas, sad još čekam plavu gumu za kopče, 1cm obrubnu gumu i stražnje kopče.

The newest sailor pants!
