My new favorite skirt! I’ve been wanting this skirt for awhile, and I love how it turned out! It’s a variation of the Quick Party Skirt How-To. I used a corduroy fabric, widened the waistband, and used a button closure in lieu of a zipper (I was very afraid of putting a zipper into such a full skirt). I had a few issues with the buttons, because it is so fitted. I needed a backing behind them, and there was one point where I also needed a hook and eye. Not perfect, but good enough for me :)
I thought for awhile about making this a bubble skirt, but it’s more casual/wearable (and less work) this way :) I also was envisioning this with pockets, and when it came down to it I completely forgot! Oh well :(
