This is the skirt I made for the Curlypops "Make it in May Skirt Sew-a-Long" and I'm in by a whisker with a day to spare!
The pattern is Butterick B4461, a very basic a-line skirt which I know fits me well as I've made it now at least 3 times. No tracing and not much thinking required! I did, however, design a cut away pocket detail to add a bit of interest this time around.
This is the table "wearing" the skirt:
And this is me wearing the skirt. (Image taken by 8 year old and therefore a bit on the blurry side.) And because I can make skirts but not boots, I had to buy a new pair to coordinate (a girl's just got to have a pair of long boots to go with her winter skirt!).
The fabric is a $10 remnant of brushed cotton canvas in camel with a very narrow black stripe. I picked it up at The Remnant Warehouse along with the fabric in my previous post (they have a great variety of dress fabrics along with the patchwork ones).
I ran the fabric the other way for the pockets:
Done! Thank you to Curlypops for hosting....Other "Made in May" skirts are here.
