Such a good skirt pattern, let me tell you! The pockets hide most of the shaping in this skirt and they have a cute notch detail. I have made this pattern up twice now, and love the results. In my previous post I showed you the construction of the skirt, but I was in search of a model to show it off, as the measurements are too big for Belle. I finally persuaded a good friend to do it. I think I owe her a box of choccies after the trauma! 😀
Who doesn’t like a Liberty print? There are so many fabulous designs in lovely colourways, but this one waved at me in my local fabric shop. I must keep my eyes open for this print in a lawn – swoon! I love the colours and the print is fabulous for autumn! The overall length is shorter than it would have been worn originally. I have taken out 12cm & turned up a 5cm hem. With this one hitting just below the knee, can you imagine how much longer it would have been with the 12cm still in?
The slightly A-line shape means it’s easy to walk – or stride around the office or out shopping. There is also a vent in the (only) centre back seam to help you along a bit. We decided to keep the styling modern & minimal with this print, but it would be fabulous with grey, shades of blue & of course some mustard!
I have a fabulous piece of stretch cotton twill in a deep purple from Croft Mill Fabrics to make another in. It’s going to look fabulous dahling! 😀 Next post will be the rose print – another Liberty! There was a slight change of plan in the pattern I used, but that story will keep.
If you want this skirt in your wardrobe this autumn, get it in my Etsy shop! There won’t be another in this fabric – ever!
