A simple but classic a-line skirt with decorative top stitching and welt pockets to make it less ordinary. It was really quick to sew and is a versatile addition to my wardrobe. An easy project, but you do need the patience and skill to do the welt pockets. I also made the boat necked top in a black and white stripe which really makes the colour pop.

Emerald green cotton drill from the stash for the skirt, and a soft ponti knit for the top.
