Made this skirt today. I really like it although my buttons seem to be bunching… we’ll see if I ever feel like fixing it.
The skirt itself was pretty easy to do, although some of the directions confused me, like attaching the top band while leaving it open to be buttoned, but I just winged it and it all turned out okay.
I need some more office type clothes for my new job and I think this Helena Skirt worn with some thick leggings will be just the thing!
I’ll probably end up making a few.
Some fabric that was gifted to me. Some kind of cotten/polyester blend.
