I’ll publish some photos soon of the two skirts I’ve made from this pattern so far — as well as I’m sure they won’t be the last, either. This skirt is extremely comfortable as well as goes together like a dream. stitching at top speed I bet I might get one cut as well as sewed in a couple of hours, as well as that includes utilizing an unnoticeable zipper (instead of the routine one the pattern phone calls for) as well as adding on-seam pockets. 

It’s a truly affordable pattern, as well — you can get it for under $5 — as well as extremely effective in terms of material use. (I’m going to go with my big bin of “pieces of material as well huge to toss yet as well little for an entire dress” as well as see what skirts I can eke out of leftover yardage.) 

So far the ones I’ve made have been in heavy denim, however I likewise just purchased some velveteen that I am dying to sew up … as well as this would be truly adorable in lightweight cottons with the heavy contrast border. Do I noise obsessed yet? It’s trending that method …
