Description

I made this skirt out of some left over sheeting that was used for a duvet cover. It has a nice sheen to it, which is why it looks wrinkly in some of the photos. I added a little crinoline just for fun, because a navy A-Line runs the risk of looking a bit to boring. It has nice movement and body without looking to poofy. I made it for the summer heat, but I think I’ll probably wear it year round with tights and boots.

The pattern was a vintage one from the seventies that I inherited from my mum. I liked it because the back pieces actually wrap around to the front so that the side seam lie along the tops of the thighs, and the outer back darts actually lie at the side. It’s a nice design and makes the basic skirt a bit more interesting.

Material Notes

Cotton blend sheeting, fine costume netting
