This week I've been working on the Tina Givens Sugar Slip. It should not take a week to do this, but it did. First of all, I did not have enough Fabric. The pattern called for 1-1/8 yard, so I got 1.25 to be sure. Well, I think I needed 3 yards! Most of Tina Givens skirt patterns are cut with a bell shape, which uses most of the width of the fabric. So, even though my fabric was 50-54" wide, I'm sure that even 60" wide still would have taken more - and I made the small size!
I made mine out of a pretty dotted swiss that I got at Vogue Fabrics on my recent trip to Chicago - so obviously, I was not going back to get more fabric. I did have some white batiste (also from Vogue Fabrics but online several years ago) that I used to cut out the top half of the back, the back facing (which for some reason she calls "interfacing" and the back of the pockets. You can see here that I stitched and serged the two sections together. Unfortunately, the batiste is not as white as the dotted swiss, but I am planning on wearing this under other garments, so it should be OK. (you ca't really see the difference in color in the picture.
And, as you can see in this photo, it is a bit see-through - so it DEFINITELY will be worn under other things!
