Description

I used Simplicity pattern 5006 by Andrea Schewe for the skirt, which is actually a petticoat pattern. I simply omitted the ruffles and it couldn’t have been easier. There were only 4 pattern pieces, one zip and two snaps. No joke, this skirt really only took about an hour to make! not to mention it is very comfortable to wear and it swishes and flicks in the wind, which is always a selling point for me.

I used a super light cotton silk blend in a rich indigo. It was another freebie I scored from work, which I’m certain I wouldn’t have been able to afford should I have had to buy it. I continuously count my lucky stars that everyone at work is so sweet and generous!

I’ve practically lived in this skirt, since its creation. Its so easy to just throw on with a blouse or tee shirt. Not only is it an easy wear, but it is also surprisingly good for climbing tree’s in, Swiss Family Robinson style.

    Oh, this is gorgeous! Lately I’ve been very into maxi and midi skirts (to my own surprise) and your skirt is just like something I’d love to try! It looks light and flowing, I love it when wind plays in my skirts too:)
