Frida Kahlo skirt

This is a skirt I made using Simplicity 2655; view B. This is the EASIEST pattern! and a great one to use when someone has very little time but wants a boutique looking-skirt. its a simple A-line, gore skirt, with a separate yoke and flounce. A fun pattern for mixing and matching fabrics or colorways. LOTS of possibilities here. I used a out of print Alexander Henry fabric in 2 color-ways called Frida’s Garden, and rather than making a traditional turned hem, I used a wide bias tape. I LOVE how it turned-out. The instructions are very clear and so easy to follow, and could be made-up into many styles depending on fabric and view choices. I will definitely sew this skirt again; However, next time, I would make the yoke and flounce on the bias. this is the only recommendation I have to make this garment even better.

      Thank you Mary. I’ve been working 6 days a week lately, and I badly needed a pattern that worked-up super-fast, without reading, nor fuss, stylish and great looking, Initially, I thought I may be asking too much, but the Simplicity 2655 definitely filled the bill. :)
