An versatile and comfortable summer skirt —not in khaki. Burdastyle Magazine May 2010 #130
I’m fairly happy with the way it turned out, though the single welt pockets were a new one for me. Not as difficult as I though they would be. The zipper placket was a little tricky though (confusing directions), and I will probably shorten the extended tab if I make it again. There are wide hooks above the zipper and I thought the button was kind of redundant so I just used snaps on the end.
Skirt: cotton/linen (?) from the bargain bin. Waistband facing is Tadot by Michael Miller (I think).
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
