Color block Nina skirt for me!

You probably would not know that I really like the patterns by Compagnie-M. I have sewn al lot of patterns by Compagnie-M, but I have sewn them before I started by blog. You can see them on my instagram account: the Louisa dress, the Charles pants, the Lotta dress, the Lila Jumpsuit and the Noa pants. The Nore dress that I made recently for my daughter was the first Compagnie-M pattern on this blog. I almost never sew a pattern twice, however, Compagnie-M patterns are one of the few exceptions. I have sewn several Julia sweaters, both for my girls as for myself.

Nina skirt by Compagnie-M

In this post I want to show you the Nina skirt* that I sewed for myself. I wanted a skirt that was light and breezy.

During our sewing weekend we were gifted the paper pattern of the Nina skirt and Culottes by Compagnie-M. It is a very versatile pattern, you can make a skirt or culottes. I adapted the pattern a bit. I cut the front piece of the skirt in two pieces to add a bit of color blocking. Well it is still the same fabric, but I like the effect. I also added a piece of fabric between the waistband and the skirt. It is piping, but then without the yarn. I also flared the sides of the skirt out a bit more. Because of the light and flowy fabric I thought that would be nice.

The fabric comes from Ikea and is very thin. Perfect for warm weather, such as in Italy where I sewed the skirt, as well as for Indonesia, where we will be going in a couple of weeks! It is so thin that it was a bit see-through by itself. Therefore I lined the skirt (which is included in the pattern). The inner skirt is a bit longer than the outer skirt. I could have shortened the inner skirt, but again I liked the effect.
