While browsing through the Boden spring catalog, I saw a skirt that I really wanted. With a $128 price tag, I didn’t want it bad enough to buy it. I decided to set about making an exact copy, but somewhere along the way I thought that it would be better if I replaced the embroidered flowers with little nautical motifs.
The skirt was made using the dirndl skirt from the Cambi pattern. I modified it by reducing the fullness just a bit to give my skirt the exact measurements of the one featured in the catalog.
