Swing Dress: Skirt Pieces Completed

I wish I had more pictures to share with you today, but most of my projects are in the muslin stages and they don’t look too pretty.

I’m continuing to work on my Swing Dress for Casey’s sew along, and I was able to get my skirt pieces done over the weekend.  They’re all serged, sewed, and pressed.  :)   

This is a quick shot of the skirt back piece.  (I have 3/4 seam allowances included and took off lots of length.)

And here’s a shot of the inside of the dress:

The lining is a lilac bemberg.  So far I’m really happy with it because it’s adding a bit of weight to the silk, which in retrospect, I’m glad I’m using because it needs the extra weight in order to drape properly.  I may also have to add some hem detail in order to get even more weight added to the skirt piece, but I won’t know for sure until I make the bodice (and attach it to the skirt).
