Tulip Skirt from Jenny Gordy’s pattern in Stitch Magazine (more details and errata here).
The tulip skirt is done, and I love how it turned out. It’s comfortable, flattering and I like the details. It was fun to sew, too, because there were several new-to-me things (like plackets) to make it interesting, but overall the pattern was very simple and easy to follow. I especially like the tie at the waist, and the higher waistband. I usually wear skirts around my hips, so this feels very smart and grown up. And there was no zipper, which is fabulous, because zippers are my #1 most commonly botched sewing thing.
Denim from Spotlight. Red Gutermann topstitching thread. Wooden buttons (vintage) from the button shop in The Rocks, Sydney.
