French Bow Skirt

I love the Jenny skirt pattern! I now use it as a template for most of my skirt creations :)
Ive also made the suspender skirt version and its AWESOME.

This skirt is several inches longer than the actual pattern. I think I need to rework the bow a little so the middle bit is a little tighter
I also put in a kick-pleat at the back

Material Notes

Blue suiting with gold lurex thread – wrong side used as the right side because I wear this skirt for work, and the true right side was just a little too lurexy

      Me too :) Im working on a way to make a tshirt with sleeves that are bows – that would be too fabulous :)

      Maybe if you make the cuff longer and tie it and fix it in place? that would be a fabulous shirt

    I prefer this length to the original, and that bow’s just perfect :)

      Me too :) there is something a little more sophisticated in a skirt that ends below the knee, so I make them all a little longer :)
