Grey skirt with bow

Added Dec 19, 2009

Somewhere, France






A mini skirt made of very soft cotton fabric, it’s puffy with a large waistband and a back zipper. I put a small placket at the front, in the middle of the waistband so that I can put a rectangle of fabric in it to make a bow :)

Material Notes

cotton, zipper




Garment Type

    This is a really nice shape, what kind of shape did you cut for the main part of the skirt? I’ve made a few skirts like this but they always tend to flare out whereas yours sits really straight.

    Love it!

      Ah thanks for the reply, I see the skirt shape now, its basically a rectangle but with an extended top for the gathers. Going to have a go at this as soon as I get home (in 3 weeks time :’( )
