Summer twirl – Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt for Minerva Crafts Blogger Network


Hi All

My latest post is up over at Minerva Crafts* – read all about it here.

This month I have made a light and breezy summer skirt – a Sewaholic Hollyburn (I miss Sewaholic!) skirt in a lovely red wine coloured viscose challis fabric. I haven’t used this type of fabric before – it was really lightweight so lots of interfacing was required and quite a lot of trimming the hem after leaving it to drop for a day or so!

I’m wearing the Hollyburn with the Ogden cami that I posted about last week.

Here is a final picture with bonus cat bombing!hollyburnback3

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer sewing – I am about to cut out a few new projects!


*I received the fabric and other supplies free of charge from Minerva Crafts in return for providing a blog post. All opinions are my own.

    Viscose challis sounds interesting – would you recommend it over something like cotton lawn or crepe?

      Yes definitely – it is much drapier then lawn – it feels like a lightweight crepe – slightly textured. The hem dropped a bit and the fabric was very soft so definitely be careful about interfacing and stay stitching!
