    So cute! I love the fullness of the skirt and the flap waistband. Very lady-like.

    I love this!! I actually attempted to refashion a button-up shirt into a skirt like this with NO success. I’m another one that will be waiting on the tutorial.

      I will post a guide this coming week on how to draft this pattern from scratch, it’s actually not too difficult.

      yes, everything I make is from scratch. I produced a basic pattern block and then adjust it accordingly.

      if i have some time this coming week, I will post instructions for the basic build of this construction!
