Lumme Pleated Skirt

Pattern: Named Pattern’s Lumme skirt

Fabric: Cotton from Dragonfly Fabrics

Finally, after pretty much an entire summer, I have gotten back into the swing of sewing. Since coming home from my 3 months at Ballymaloe Cookery School it’s all been a bit mad (and it doesn’t look like letting up anytime soon – try November…), so it’s taken a wee bit of time to get back behind the sewing machine.

Between shifts in the tweed shop and private chef work it’s been all go – I can count on one hand the spare days I’ve had. But it’s all good – I’m just back from a week cooking on the North Esk for a group fishing which was lovely. They are regular clients – in fact they were my first ever clients five years ago – and it’s always lovely cooking for familiar faces.

Anyway, despite this I’ve managed to squeeze in some sewing and have a few makes piling up on my blogging to do list – a jacket, a floaty flowery skirt, an embroidered top and this, Named patterns Lumme skirt.

I’ve had this pattern kicking about for an absolute age but could never quite work out what fabric I wanted to use for it. After much humming and hawing I eventually settled on this cotton from Dragonfly Fabric – a lovely summery feeling fabric ideal for summer.

The construction of the skirt itself I don’t have much to say about – it was very straightforward thanks, as ever, to Named’s clear instructions.

And to be honest, that’s about all I have to say for now – it’s a great pattern and I will be sure to make it again, perhaps in a heavier weight fabric for winter. I’m all worded out – a busy day serving customers in the shop has drained my chat resources for now.

Summer has hit Scotland! 

Have a good week (enjoy the sunshine!)

    1. Thank you Linda! I will do – it’s nice to get back to some sewing after a couple of months of very intensive cooking 🙂 I think cooking is definitely something you either love or don’t like!

  1. Great skirt, the fabric looks lovely and I think the diamonds around the hips works really well. I think a winter one is a great idea. You must have the creative gene for cooking and sewing!

    1. Thank you Lynsey! I’m thinking some tartan fabric for a winter one… Maybe with a faux button placket down the front..? Haha yes I seem to have ended up with a creative gene – makes up for the total disaster I am when it comes to anything science or maths related!!
