Description

This is the first skirt that I made, my second project ever, and I absolutely love it. It’s so funky and it was nice and easy to make, and with not much experience, by just reading the intructions i got this awesome skirt! I have had lots of compliments from people when I wear it to work etc.

Material Notes

Polyester Cotton $3/m – score! I used purple lining for the pocket, which looks awesome withe the colour of the skirt.
I didnt have a matching button, and since i was so keen to finish the skirt to wear so i borrowed a spare black button. Will change it over later on.

    Hi Louise, just wanted to let you know that you’ve inspired me to try this pattern as well! Yours turned out so beautifully! Being a novice at sewing, I thought it might be to difficult but from your comments it wasn’t, so I’m definitely aiming for this one! Well done! Happy sewing!
