Description

A pleated skirt with scalloped pockets. The waistband was from a pattern for a skirt from a 1988 edition of the NZ Australian Women’s Weekly “Handmade” magazine. The pockets were made using Casey’s shaped pocket tutorial
The rest of the skirt I just made up as I went along!

      Thanks! It took me a while to figure out what to do, because I wanted the pockets to stand out, but I like what I ended up with :)
