Happy bank holiday weekend!!
It’s skirt season at And She Made at the moment. Following on from my last post about skirt inspiration, the Prima pattern, scallop edged skirt and the floral Delphine, a little while ago I also made this skirt. It’s a midi navy blue skirt and the perfect stashbusting project!
I made it so long ago I can’t quite remember if I self drafted the skirt or adapted one of my sewing patterns. It’s likely to have been the Delphine if I did adapt it.
The most important thing to note with this skirt is that it has POCKETS!
I made the pockets out of some navy blue polka dot fabric that I didn’t have a huge amount of and the main fabric is a jersey or stretch cotton I think. I think this came from the leftover pile at work so I have no idea what it is actually made of.
I eke-ed out the midi length skirt from what I had though and added a zip. It’s the perfect flowy, drapey fabric though and best of all, it didn’t need lining. The only thing I don’t like is how the pockets affect the shape of the skirt and once I’d put them in I wanted to take them out again.
So I may do that sometime in the future and this is the perfect replacement until I finally get around to making that circle skirt I’m planning on making.
Have you got any plans for bank holiday sewing?
