watercolour sketch.

A quick sketch with me new watercolour paints!

This sketch is a copy by the way spotted in company's high street edit magazine from last spring/summer.

 I've been after a set of  water colour pans for a while, I've settled with the royal&langnickle brand but I wish I had gone for the Windsor & Newton brand instead which are the ones I've been cavorting. 
I used to use watercolours all the time, one of the reasons is that they are easy to use and you can easily remedy a mistake with them. I then switched to using pro-markers which are quicker to use (no mixing colours) The pro markers also made me a better artist/illustrator as it forces you to work more quickly and accurately thus making less mistakes, but as much as I love using pro-markers, it's nice to have a range of mediums especially watercolours as they produce more fluid/softer results.

p.s I'm a really bad blogger as of late, I've still not photographed any of my recent makes and for that I apologise. hopefully normal service will resume soon!!

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
