Neue Mode 23150


Next up is a pattern I've had in the stash for close to 10 years, Neue Mode 23150. I'm not sure why it's taken me this long to try it but its time has finally come. It's printed multi-sized on tissue but without seam or hem allowances, so it does need to be traced. Fortunately, there are only 4 pieces so tracing went quickly.

I'm making View B, the shorter version, from black ponte knit. Yes, another black skirt. I'm double-topstitching the seams with a triple straight stitch. Black on black, so it will be subtle. I'm also going to leave open short slits in the sideseams, instead of making a CB slit per the pattern.


And that's all I have for tonight. :-)

I understand the need or so many black skirts in a work wardrobe. The top stitching looks good.

You can never have too many black skirts. Love the topstitching.
