This is a cute skirt, with a great silhouette, and even better, practical pockets!
However I ruined it with my fabric choice: a very thick, stiff, and heavy canvas like beast. I thought it was similar to denim, but it is actually much heavier. I felt like I was wearing cardboard, which I can forgive. What I couldn’t ignore, however, were the buttonholes. Thick fabric does not like to bend or fold easily for tiny buttons to pass through, so while making this skirt was a breeze, wearing it was another feat as I had to really work my finger muscles to get these buttons through the buttonholes. I’ll be salvaging the buttons, the fabric reused into a tote or pouch, but most definitely not a garment! The Kelly pattern, don’t worry, will be made again in a more suitable fabric.
